Continuum Family Business Visit GCC 2016

Continuum Family Business Visit GCC 2016

An exceptional journey: Over the course of a 5 day trip family businesses from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas visited and met family-owned companies from the Middle East. The Continuum experience is designed for family enterprises and offices that are looking for growth opportunities through:

  • Peer-to-Peer Learning
  • Cross border collaboration – Strategic alliances
  • Market entries
  • Co-Investments

The companies the participants visited during their journey were all multi-generational family businesses based in Muscat (Oman), Abu Dhabi and Dubai (UAE). Their activities are all diversified across multiple industries and enjoy excellent long-standing reputations in the region. The Continuum Participants were welcomed during each visit by members of the owning families.

On 10th November, on the last day of the journey, Continuum ended with a half-day conference which will included 30 VIP family businesses from the Middle East as well as regional entrepreneurs who shared their experiences and interest for growth and collaboration.

The Continuum Family Business Visit GCC 2016 took place from 5th – 11th November 2016. Read more about it in the Tharawat Magazine Blog!
