Going Global: Internationalization Pathways for Family Firms During the 19th and 20th Century
The conference will contribute to this emerging field of research by focusing on family businesses as international actors. From the 19th century, family businesses have addressed global challenges and have competed in international markets. Therefore, adjustments to their corporate governance have been necessary. Family businesses opened up to external knowledge and capital, often while exploring new strategies to maintain the family's influence. Whereas some family firms have succeeded - for example as "hidden champions" or successful niche producers - others have experienced severe setbacks or have failed. This conference will gather international scholars in order to discuss different strategies and pathways for internationalization that family businesses pursued during the 19th and 20th century.
