About us

Due to the period 1946 – 1989 the Czech Republic has not had the history of family business that developed foreign economies have had for several generations. For this reason, there is a lack of experience in the Czech Republic with the transfer of a family business from one generation to another. One of the key missions of our Centre is to transfer this experience to the Czech Republic from abroad, and in cooperation with Czech family businesses, to build up optimal ‘know-how’ for the administration and management of family businesses.

Why are we here?
Our aim is long-lasting prosperity for the family business.



We navigate the process of succession, management and administration of family businesses. We bring ‘know-how’ from abroad, where family businesses often have more than a century of history. In our team we have both experienced academics and experts from the field of business.



We try to understand what works or doesn’t work when engaging family members in the business. We conduct research projects with leading universities based abroad. We publish the research results in prestigious international journals and reflect on them in our courses.



We connect Czech family businesses and students. Top experts from all over the world come to our events. We promote the interests of family businesses on a regional and European level.
