Why the FaB.ER days?
The fields of family businesses and entrepreneurship have developed independently, while maintaining a certain proximity in terms of education, conferences and scientific associations. (Katz, 2003; Sharma, Hoy, Astrachan et Koiranen, 2007; Chabaud et Sammut, 2014). This has given them the opportunity to create a fruitful dialogue: while entrepreneurship takes place in family contexts (Aldrich et Cliff, 2003; Salvato et Aldrich, 2012), emphasis has also been placed on the entrepreneurial behavior of family businesses (Shepherd et Patzelt, 2017), leading to the emergence of a field of research devoted to their recovery: family entrepreneurship (Fayolle et Bégin, 2009; Bettinelli et al., 2014; Radu Lefebvre et Lefebvre, 2016; Randerson et al., 2015, 2016).
Themes of the first FaB.ER Days The aim of this gathering is to allow researchers from these disciplines to gather and strengthen their dialogue. In particular, it promotes exchanges between the two thematic groups “BET – Business Transfer and Entrepreneurship” and “Family businesses and entrepreneurship” of the Academy of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and more generally welcomes all contributions focused on the connection between entrepreneurship and family businesses.
