Prestel and Partner organise high profile conferences exclusively for Family Offices and UHNWI. The purpose of the conferences is to facilitate the discussion of relevant topics and to promote networking and information exchange among peers. Prestel and Partner have no interest other than to provide such a networking platform and at the same time guarantee complete privacy. Family Offices and UHNWI attend as our guests whereas a limited number of passes is made available to relevant solution providers, sponsors and delegates.

Prestel and Partner always make sure that more genuine Family Offices than solution providers attend, both on stage and in the audience. A genuine Family Office in our definition has a minimum of US$150 million AUM and works for one or few Families (not as a solution provider to many third parties).

Business Families Foundation

Business Families Foundation is a not‐for‐profit charitable organization established by owners for owners. Business Families Foundation has been a frontrunner in growing the field for over 25 years by acting as a neutral platform where the family business community can come together and learn from one another.

We advocate for a family-first frame of mind and believe that staying close to one’s roots, both in values and legacy is the most sustainable way to grow - as a business, family or an individual. We believe in encouraging the rising generation not only to be involved in the business, but also to take ownership of new innovative initiatives that will add value to the organization as well as enhance the family legacy.

Our mission is to create a world where the family business model is sustainable for generations to come by equipping families to strengthen themselves through continuous learning with tools that enable them to ask the right questions, and make educated decisions for the family and the business. It is by strengthening families that we will strengthen their enterprises and stimulate the economy at large.

Business Families Foundation offers the largest selection of Family Business Resources on the Web. We have worked with thousands of enterprising families and experts from hundreds of family business centers, educational institutions and networks around the world in order to identify and understand the issues faced from generation to generation. These grounded insights have been used to develop applicable and engaging online courses, interactive activities, relatable case stories, family and expert interviews, as well as infographics so that other families may learn from their peers and better plan for the future.
