The Global Family Enterprise Case Competition (FECC) is all about entrepreneurship. This event takes place in January at the University of Vermont, Burlington, USA; teams have to qualify first through a “pre-arrival case”.

The competition prepares participants to understand the critical issues that are unique to family enterprises by applying the knowledge and expertise they already have, towards solving complex family business cases.

During four tough rounds of competition, teams grapple with issues related to business with a special emphasis on the challenges facing family-owned enterprises. Presentations are judged by a distinguished panel of experts comprised of academics and some of the world’s leading family-business entrepreneurs.
