Advising Family Business

Is Your Business Ready For The Next Gen?  

Avoid the Entitlement Trap™

Family business originates from the founder’s entrepreneurial spirit and sacrifices made by the family. The challenge is finding the right mix of family values and business values to stabilize governance. Defining your SUCCESS FORMULA is essential for keeping the business performing and the Entitlement Trap™ at bay.

A family business that has taken the more arduous road of nurturing the family to be a “family that is in business”, has a higher probability of surviving and sustaining the business over successive generations.

The success of a family business is dependent on instilling good governance and preserving its entrepreneurial spirit. KRO advises on finding balance between family and business values to ensure your family business remains productive and protects your way of life.
