Family Enterprise Entertainment
Dear Family Enterprise Community,

The plan of succession in a family enterprise is critical to its success, but it can be a difficult topic. This weekend we have some fun and provocative ways to look at the issue.

  • Nina's Heavenly Delights. After running away to London for three years to escape an arranged marriage, Nina is forced to return to Glasgow to run her late father’s curry house. 

  • Uncorked. Elijah is a young man that is faced with the hard decision to choose between his dreams of becoming a sommelier or continuing his father’s legacy at the family owned BBQ restaurant in Memphis.

  • Buddenbrooks. A classic that follows succession (and more) across four generations in 19th century Germany.

Thank you to the alumni who’ve already sent us your favorites.

If you have any recommendations of your favorite movies, series, or books, please send them to:  familyenterprise@gsb.columbia.edu
Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay tuned …
