The Global Business Families Engagement Programme aims to provide global business families with a curated and effortless avenue to understand Singapore’s business ecosystem and connect with the local business community.
Through this programme, FBN Asia will support overseas global business families with exploratory business and personal interest in Singapore. Participants can expect to meet with other business families already based in Singapore, join exclusive FBN Asia networking and learning events, and receive support from FBN Asia to connect with relevant and trusted partners specific to their interest in Singapore.
Given FBN Asia’s long-standing experience with its members, comprising both the family businesses and family offices communities, it is thus well-positioned to appreciate the needs and accordingly, provide the relevant support to these Global Business Families.
The Global Business Families Engagement Programme is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB).
