The EFBC is a proud partner of the Family Enterprise Foundation (FEF); a non-profit organization that empowers business families to ensure their sustainability and harmony for generations to come.

ROOTS logoThrough BFF, we offer curriculum (known as Roots) to our members and community at large. These courses allow us to dive deeper into family business topics. Roots classes offer relevant and engaging education on important issues faced by family businesses. By utilizing the BFF curriculum, the EFBC is able to help you tackle issues that are often left unaddressed, such as transition planning, communication, governance and multi-generational leadership.

Three times a year, the EFBC hosts an introductory course, Roots: A Course for Anchoring Your Business, which explores and introduces the business family system. We encourage all new members to take this course but anyone is invited to attend. During the rest of the year, we offer additional courses focused on specific issues of family and small business such as Family Meetings and Advisory Boards.
