The Austin Family Business Program excels as a pacesetting family business resource. We prepare family businesses to balance the well-being of the business, the family and individuals, as they address the challenges and opportunities which inevitably arise, day to day and during succession.

We foster healthy family businesses -- through innovative tools, hands-on learning opportunities and honest talk.
