The Owners Forum connects leading family enterprises in economic cooperation and knowledge exchange. Generations of ownership, entrepreneurial spirit and social integrity form our common ground. Dedicated service to one another is our shared resource.


Members are owners of large, multigenerational and globally ambitious family enterprises from old and new growth regions and business sectors. Members share and leverage each other’s expertise in business matters, family leadership and citizenship. They are custodians of their enterprises, their legacies and their communities. The circle grows slowly and carefully only as members nominate peer family enterprises into the forum.


Each Owners Forum facilitates a personal exchange of ideas around economic and social landscapes both local and global. To ensure open dialogue, forums are limited to 100 member families and their guests and follow a strict, no-media policy. Forums encourage international cooperation and foster an open atmosphere for sharing thoughts and experiences with one another. The format includes keynotes, workshops, roundtables, pre-arranged business meetings, cultural reconnaissance, privately hosted dinners and time set aside for private talks.
