Highlight Event – 2018 STEP Asia Pacific Summit
The STEP Asia Pacific Summit will be held from 26 to 27 July 2018 at Singapore Management University.
Conference Theme: Family Entrepreneurship – Creating Value in Every Generation
Enduring family businesses display exemplary stewardship behaviour driven by a strong consideration for sustainable growth and a desire to give to the community in various forms. Asian family firms represent 85% of the world’s family owned businesses and contribute to 32% of the total market capitalisation, playing a major role in the development of their economies. However, due to the relatively young nature of these firms and the limited pool of experience within the family, cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit is necessary to sustain the initial growth momentum. The business needs to be rejuvenated in every generation as if it was the first, creating lasting value for both the business and the family. To support successors of family firms in playing this entrepreneurial role effectively, it is vital for us to build collective knowledge on what drives transformation in family firms.
