Family Business Histories

A collaborative research project between NYUAD and Tharawat Family Business Forum

Family Business History is the first research initiative mapping family business legacies in the MENASA region. It features a globally unique approach to understanding the multi-faceted impact of family-owned businesses in the regional economy, society and culture, while preserving the history of individual entrepreneurs and collective business activities. This understanding will not only offer significant insights into historical transformations of business cultures and socio-economic environments in the GCC as well as the MENASA region but also help family businesses address current and future challenges.
