Twenty years ago, at FBN 13th Global Summit in Helsinki, a small group of NxGs from various countries stood up to have a NxGs-only space. As described by one of our members:
“All too soon, FBN conference was over and we found ourselves sitting next to our parents… But we next generation members couldn't stop getting together during breaks and dinners….The networking was the most valuable part of the conference. It turned out we all had similar life situations; we told the same stories about deciding whether or not to join the family business. We discovered that we, 'the children', need to be able to discuss and share our ideas, thoughts and experiences of being family business members, without having our parents present" Michael Carlander, NxG Sweden
Previous events highlights
Over the past 15 years, the NxG International Summit has brought participants to places they thought they would never go geographically, emotionally, and mentally.
In the spirit of the NxG Communities’ mission: “Happier families and sustainable businesses through an aware and inspired Next Generation.”
With this vision, FBN-I targets not only NxGs but also their families. The NxG International Summit is a safe space for parents to send future generations in order to gain the level of self-confidence, awareness and happiness required to become engaged and responsible future owners.
