FAB – Families and Business
We provide a powerful platform for families in business to connect and exchange ideas, learn from each other and foster peer-to-peer best practices. What makes us unique is our ability to offer a free-flowing exchange of ideas and information, with the confidence that FAB is a non-solicitation platform.
A family business needs meaningful interaction and mutual acceptance of ideas at all generational levels. FAB has harnessed the expertise of top-talent professionals from India and around the world to steer these discussions through webinars, workshops, seminars, conclaves and conferences.
The objective of what we do is to empower family business owners to grow their enterprises successfully, for generations to come.
