Welcome to the Family Owned Business Institute.
The Family Owned Business Institute mission is to champion and serve family owned businesses through scholarship, education and advocacy.
In September 1999, the Seidman College of Business and the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce (working with its Family-Owned Business Council) raised $301,000 from a salute to Jay Van Andel and Rich DeVos. This became the seed money for the Family Owned Business Institute, housed at the downtown campus of Grand Valley State University.
