Founders and Family Business Network

The opportunities and challenges facing family and founder-led businesses are unique. Join our network to read insights on how to plan for the next stage of growth.

Family and founder-led businesses are known for their ambitious and driven spirit. As a founder-led business ourselves, Investec understands the unflinching personal commitment of business owners and the unique challenges they face. 

 

Our network brings together some of the most enterprising founders and family business leaders to share knowledge, insights and experiences that have helped shape their decisions and guide them to long-term success.  

By joining our network, you will have access to astute commentary and reports, as well as carefully curated networking events.
