The IFB was founded in 2001 by a group of family business owners to create a safe and non-solicitous environment where they could get together to talk openly about their challenges and share their experiences to help others. Those founding principles are still core to how they operate today.
As a not-for-profit organisation they put the needs of our members at the heart of everything we do.
The IFB provides a safe space where family businesses can connect, share their stories and learn from each other.Through their community, for the past 16 years, they have been helping family businesses across the UK to achieve their long-term goals.
IFB members are part of a wider, global network of over 3,000 family firms through the Family Business Network (FBN).
