Believing in the power and purpose of family enterprises

Family enterprises serve as a cornerstone of the US economy and as a major source of economic and societal impact around the world.

Family enterprises are also unique in their complexity with the interconnectivity of family, business, and ownership. This year, the pandemic has created a pivotal moment where many leaders are looking toward the future and considering important questions such as:

  • What are we doing to assess whether the next generation is ready, willing, and able to take over the family enterprise?
  • How can we capitalize on new organic and inorganic growth opportunities?
  • What processes do we have in place to make sure we are investing in the right technology to optimize our business and protect our data?
  • What options do I have for a liquidity event?
  • Could a change in tax laws influence our decision to sell the business?

Deloitte is positioned to advise leaders as they address these questions. We have a 175-year history of serving family enterprises to help bring their goals to life.  

Our purpose-driven approach helps elevate family enterprises, providing guidance for a future consistent with the values and vision essential for a thriving and sustainable legacy of multi-generational success.
