A team of professionals specialized in the development of family businesses.


About us

We are a boutique firm (/studio) specialized in strategic consulting focused on the development and relaunch of family-based businesses which operate in mature industries.


During our 25 years in business we have helped grow and relaunchbusinesses and the organizations of our corporate clients, trained on the job hundreds of managers and supported many entrepreneurial families through the generational replacement.

How we differ from others

In contrast to the common industry practice focusing on business weaknesses and thus on solving problems, not always solvable; our initiatives focus on both the visible and hidden strengths, on the underutilized assets and the strengthening of both the management and the Family leadership.

Our mission

Discovering dormant assets, unlocking value and leading the family-based business towards higher levels of competitiveness. And therefore, for our customers this means: Strong company, Successful Family.

What we believe in

We strongly believe in family businesses and in their capability to make the change in creating value and in the development of our country. After several years of study, observation and hands-on experience, shared with many entrepreneurial families, we have founded: Familybiz magazine.

‘FamilyBiz’ is the first Italian management magazine centred on the family business system. Through the activity of the magazine, focused on the most relevant issues for family-based businesses, including: the management and organization, the generational continuity, ordinary and extraordinary finance, the development and relaunch of the business, we want to remain vigilant on the Italian family businesses and provide entrepreneurial families with a contribution to further growth of the corporate culture of their businesses.
