Family- and privately-owned businesses face unique issues. The mission of the UNC Asheville Family Business Forum (FBF) is to provide professional learning opportunities to help these closely held businesses maximize the overall well-being of their company, and to assist with transition planning for the next generation of ownership.

The Family Business Forum is grateful for the generous support of the SBTDC:
