The Family Business Histories research initiative is the first and most ground-breaking project mapping family business legacies in the MENASA region their impact on the regional economy, society and culture.

Family Business Histories publications consist of a series of case studies which explore the historical evolution of selected leading family businesses in the MENASA region. The historical narratives shed a light on the businesses’ multi-generational quest for longevity in spite of internal and contextual challenges.

In this webinar, we are proud to present to you the second case study in the series, conducted with Almajdouie Group.
