A global research on family business says

96% of family businesses break within 3 generations

"The family-owned business is a very complex entity and therefore it needs a bit more thinking and training. More than 80 per cent of issues in family-owned business are actually identical around the world. The solutions, however, are unique to each family. "

Mr. Sunil Kant Munjal, Chairman,
Hero Enterprises (Hero Motocorp)

"Almost all family companies, at some stage of their continuation, face a quiet, not-so-spoken conflict, as the next generation with new aspirations come of age and challenges older constructs -- constructs that have fared well thus far."

Mr Harsh Mariwala, Chairman,
Marico Limited (Parachute Oil Company)
