Message from Professor K Ramachandran

Dear Friend:

I am happy to come back to you with the third issue of the e-newsletter on family business from the ISB. Under the Thomas Schmidheiny Chair of Family Business and Wealth Management, we have been doing many interesting things.

The focus of this newsletter is on the mini conference we had organised on Growth and Professionalisation Challenges in Multi-Generational Ventures. We had some very good speakers on this panel. The essence of this discussion is covered in this issue.

While our research is expanding with the involvement of more colleagues, there is a new course I am going to offer to our students from this month.

Hope you will find this interesting. As always, we await your comments.

Best wishes,

Professor K Ramachandran
