The Tharawat Family Business Forum was established in 2006 by a number of leading Middle Eastern families and Dr Hischam El Agamy as a membership-based network. Tharawat is one of the Arab World's leading organisations dedicated to family business research, education and exchange.
As an independent, non-profit business network for Arabian family-owned businesses, Tharawat’s vision is to contribute towards the growth and stability of 80% of the businesses in the Arab world that are family-owned.
The forum’s flagship Continuum Family Business Conference in London is an opportunity for Tharawat to share experiences and research from around the world with our members and guests from other increasingly prominent regions.
Tharawat Family Business Forum is also the founding partner of the quarterly family business publication Tharawat magazine. The publication has become a leading global resource on all things family business and entrepreneurship.
Together, Tharawat Family Business Forum and Tharawat magazine have launched the first Arabic content website on family business, Family Business Arabia.
