New STEP Data Publications

August 31, 2018

We are happy to share two new publications developed from the data collected from the STEP Project for Family Enterprising.

First, we are pleased to announce an article published in Family Business Review: The Development of an Entrepreneurial Legacy: Exploring the Role of Anticipated Futures in Transgenerational Entrepreneurship from STEP co-authors Francesco BarberaUniversity of Adelaide; Isabell StammTechnical University Berlin and Rocki-Lee DeWittUniversity of Vermont.  “Through a multilayered analysis of narratives drawn from three generations of a single business family, we document that entrepreneurial legacies feature both stable and fluid elements, and that forward-looking components in family storytelling—which we refer to as “anticipated futures”—affect this dynamic character.”

In addition, a STEP Practitioner Booklet: Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices in Family Firms: Perspectives of Latin America has been released and available both in English and Spanish!  STEP co-authors of this booklet include: Yeny RodriguezUniversidad Icesi; Luis Diaz MatajiraUniversidad de los Andes; Nunzia AulettaInstituto de Estudios Superiores de Administracion and Ana Cristina GonzalezGrand Valley State University.  Quantitative data from Latin American family businesses in this report was analyzed to present general information in terms of size, structures and mechanisms of corporate governance and family itself, plus other dimensions such as the resources they have and their entrepreneurial, financial and social performance.
