About the Family Business Awards
The Family Business Awards program honors family businesses that make up the backbone of the American economy. From small, boutique operations to large multi-generational firms, these entrepreneurial families are building business legacies that will last for generations to come. More than two thirds of privately held businesses in the U.S. are family-owned firms, but many times they are overshadowed by large public organizations. That’s why SmartCEO is honoring and celebrating the family businesses that are successful, growing and moving America forward. Honorees will be profiled in the May/June issue of SmartCEO magazine.
SmartCEO’s mission is to educate and inspire the business community through its awardwinning magazine, connections at C-level events and access to valuable online resources. SmartCEO’s integrated media platforms reach decision makers in the Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, metropolitan areas.
