The Family Business Center of Hawai’i is a partnership between Hawaii’s family business community and the University of Hawai’i Shidler College of Business.

Established in 1995, the mission of the Family Business Center is “equipping, educating, and celebrating families in business.” The Center provides opportunities for families to address many of the challenges they face by providing educational seminars and a forum for the exchange of information between families so that they can survive and thrive through future generations.
