Take a look at what we can do for your family business!

The Family Business Alliance is a unique cross-sector cooperation that draws the best from local and national research, expertise, and practice for the benefit of the West Michigan family-owned business community.

Spearheaded by the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce and the Family Owned Business Institute of Grand Valley State University's Seidman College of Business, and supported by family-owned businesses (as members) and firms providing services to them (as underwriter partners), the Family Business Alliance offers a variety of opportunities focused on the distinct challenges family businesses face. Our programs include workshops, one-to-one assistance and mentorship, NextGen Peer Groups, and networking opportunities. Learn about The Synergy of Collaboration.

The FBA is committed to “helping family businesses succeed generation to generation”.

As a member of the Family Business Alliance, you will gain knowledge and experience from our events, programs and networking with family business members from around the region.

A very special thank you goes to Warner Norcross & Judd LLP and Fifth Third Bank for continuing to support the family businesses of West Michigan as our 2014 Platinum Underwriters.
