Founded in 2005 by Babson College in collaboration with six academic affiliates in Europe, the STEP Project is a global applied research initiative that explores the entrepreneurial process within business families and generates solutions that have immediate application for family leaders. The visionary institutions that founded the project include ESADE (Spain), HEC (France), Jönköping International Business School (Sweden), Universita Bocconi (Italy), Universitat St. Gallen (Switzerland), Universitat Witten/Herdecke (Germany), and Babson College (USA).
The STEP team from Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) in Lugano, Switzerland is hosting the 2017 STEP Global Summit on November 8-11, 2017. The team at USI has been working hard to make this a memorable experience for STEP families and STEP academics.
