UNL to Host Inaugural Family Business Conference

February 8, 2019 - 12:31pm

The inaugural Family Business Conference will be hosted at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Innovation Campus in March, featuring workshops and presentations on topics related to family business.

Organized by the College of Business and Center for Entrepreneurship at the university, the theme of the conference is “The Challenge of Change,” and will focus on business and leadership tactics for family businesses which range from farms to restaurants. The keynote speaker for the conference is Dave Sprecht, who is internationally recognized for his expertise in family business.

Samantha Fairclough, the associate director for the Center for Entrepreneurship, said she hopes the conference serves as a place where people can share important knowledge and network with one another.

“We’d also really love to create a community of people who work in family businesses so that they can share some of the issues and challenges that they face," Fairclough said. "The conference itself is a really great networking opportunity for people in family businesses who are facing similar issues.”

The conference is on March 1 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT. Registration prices are $20 for students and $49 for the general public. You can sign up on the UNL website.
