Goal

The aim of the Ten Clarenwater Foundation is to strengthen the entrepreneurial power of family businesses by supporting knowledge development and dissemination relevant for the target audience.

One of the distinguishing factor of family businesses is the overlap between the family, the business and ownership. These systems interact and are interdependent of each other and this has an impact  on strategic issues in the business  and of the functioning of the family as well. Applied research will help to better understand this dynamics and to develop instruments to better deal with this. Knowledge dissemination is important to make sure that new insights reach the target group, family business advisors and students.

Focus

Ten Clarenwater Foundation supports knowledge development and knowledge dissemination of the Dutch Centre of Expertise in Family Business (Landelijk Expertisecentrum Familiebedrijven, LEF) in order to strengthen the entrepreneurial power of the family businesses.

The research of family businesses is a relatively young discipline, in which the Dutch Centre of Expertise in Family Business  at Windesheim has a strong position in the Netherlands. The focus on applied research makes the centre unique.  The activities of the centre are funded by Windesheim in combination with external funding from grants and projects. The support of  The Clarenwater Foundation makes it possible to expand the activities of the centre and the strengthen its international focus. With a donation to Ten Clarenwater business families  support research and knowledge valorization of which family business owners, advisors and students will benefit from.
