Running a Family Business?
The DCU Centre for Family Business is the first national hub for research, expert advice and best practice for managing and sustaining family businesses in Ireland. Family businesses account for 75% of all Irish firms, more than 50% of GDP and 50% of all employment. They face unique challenges, not least survival to second and third generations, but also unique opportunities they can grasp with expert support. At DCU, we advise on best practice in issues such as management, governance, and succession. We also provide support through education and training, learning from others, and problem-solving e.g. in market development.
