On November 3, 2017, the Institute for Family Business will honor outstanding family businesses within the state of Texas. This year marks the 28th anniversary of the awards program. Baylor University's Institute for Family Business has hosted the Texas Family Business of the Year awards program every year since 1989. The Awards events will be held in the Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation in the Meyer Conference Center and Room 143/144.
The Texas Family Business of the Year Awards Program recognizes multi-generational, family-owned firms whose families demonstrate a commitment to each other, to their employees, to the community and to business continuity. This event draws hundreds of family business owners annually to the Baylor campus and not only recognizes and promotes outstanding family businesses but also is a valuable networking and development tool for family business honorees and undergraduate students who are invited to the afternoon family business forum and evening awards banquet. Texas Family Business of the Year firms are recognized in three size categories and several special categories recognizing: Family Values, Excellent Management, Community Commitment, Rapid Growth, Stewardship, Founders and Heritage Awards.
Through this program, the Institute for Family Business helps to fulfill its mission to provide a forum for the development and dissemination of information relevant to the health and continuity of the family business.
Announcements and deadlines for the 2017 Texas Family Business of the Year Awards are available on the Nomination and Application page links at right.
