Family enterprise

Unlocking ambition in family-owned enterprises from one generation to the next.

Family enterprise owners face unique challenges as they balance their ambition to grow with the effort to build the family legacy.

Drawing from more than 100 years of experience supporting the world’s most entrepreneurial families, we have identified the success factors for family enterprise growth — the Growth DNA Model. This model and the EY 7 Drivers of Growth pinpoint the issues and areas of focus that will support family enterprise leaders in achieving their ambitions and building a long-term, intergenerational legacy. 

As trusted advisors to enterprise-owning families around the world, we have the experience, authority and programs to support families to grow from generation to generation.
