Founded in 2005 by Babson College in collaboration with six academic affiliates in Europe, the Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices (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 STEP Project for Family Enterprising was the first global research study to focus on entrepreneurship in business families.

Families are the dominant form of business organization worldwide—they play a leading role in the social and economic wealth creation of communities and countries. To achieve continued growth and continuity, they must pass on the entrepreneurial mindsets and capabilities that enable them to create new streams of wealth across many generations—not just pass a business from one generation to the next. We refer to this practice as transgenerational entrepreneurship.

Leading academics and business families from around the world have joined as partners of the STEP Project to explore Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices. For more details about membership, please click here.
