WIFU Online Forum

WIFU Online Forum


With the digital event format “WIFU Online Forum”, WIFU is consistently continuing its digitalization course and offers a useful addition to its numerous presence formats. Every two to four weeks, interested parties from science and practice are given over 90 minutes the opportunity to exchange information on family entrepreneurship-related topics as part of a moderated online discussion. Every event is enriched by the extensive know-how of a subject expert at WIFU.

In the run-up to the online forum, WIFU provides practice-oriented information materials, elaborations, studies, lecture recordings etc. on Facebook and LinkedIn, which serve to prepare the participants for the forum.

Participation in the WIFU online forum is free of charge, but requires prior registration.

You can find the current event flyer containing the dates of the WIFU online forum here:
