The Family Business Center

Since 1993, the Family Business Center (FBC) at the University of Louisville has proudly served family-owned businesses in the Kentuckiana region. Our members receive the collective insights of established family-owned businesses, respected advisors, and scholars from the UofL College of Business.

We work to create a learning community in which families and their businesses gain the knowledge and connections they need to grow, succeed, and thrive from generation to generation.

  • Generating, translating, and disseminating research about business-owning families and family enterprises
  • Advocating for the entrepreneurial and economic role of business-owning families and family enterprises in our region
