Family Business Ireland will formally launch their new website www.familybusiness.ie on December 4th, 2012. This new website will make it easier for Family Business owners to access information and locate Professional Service providers.
Family Business Ireland is an information and support service for the founders, owners, next generation managers and professional advisors of family businesses. Over the past fifteen years Plato has directly facilitated hundreds of family businesses throughout Ireland to successfully manage the issues of succession, legacy, transference and continuity.
The launch of the new website coincides with the European Family Businesses General Assembly – ‘Strengthening family business: an Irish perspective’ takes place on Tuesday 4th December, Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin.
The objectives of European Family Businesses are to promote a full understanding of the key role of family-owned enterprises in Europe’s economy, to press for policies that will support the creation of a level playing field for family businesses compared to all other types of companies, and to ensure recognition of their contribution to the entrepreneurial culture and social cohesion in Europe. In addition, European Family Businesses represents and supports the next generation of entrepreneurs.
The new website is a core element of the strategy and support services provided by Family Business Ireland. There is a library of free to download information/templates/documents relevant to Family Business owners, relevant case studies of Irish Family Businesses, along with a directory of Family Business professional service providers in all 32 counties.
As the new website is launched, we’d like to wish the team at Family Business Ireland success with the valuable services that they are offering.
