Research Applied: FBR Précis on When Family Business Meets Social Enterprise

FFI Practitioner is pleased to invite Robert Randolph to discuss his upcoming Family Business Review article, “When Family Business Meets Social Enterprise: An Integrative Review and Future Research Agenda,” cowritten with Benjamin Alexander, Kristen Madison, and Francesco Barbera. Dr. Randolph, assistant professor of family business management at Kennesaw State University, discusses the connections and the research gaps that emerge when social enterprise research and family business research are reviewed together.

Topics include
• the different strategies that family enterprises employ to address social goals
• how advisors and families can interpret social goals as being goals of economic resilience and renewal, rather than non-economic goals
• considering the significance of the family/community relationship
• the role of practitioners in considering where family-centered and community-centered value is being created in the enterprise
