Essential Mantras for Family Business – Online Symposiums from PFBI of GMR Group

 4 months ago    

This a new initiative from the Parampara Family Business Institute (PFBI), non-profit research and educational institute under the charitable arm of GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMRVF), which aims to support family businesses in their sustainability and perpetuity endeavors through the distribution of educational content on relevant topics. Given that approximately 70% of businesses in India are family-managed, we believe that family businesses are the cornerstone of India’s economy.

Over the next few months, PFBI is introducing a series of online talks titled “Essential Mantras for Family Business”.
