Are you looking for high-quality new material to enrich your family business courses and freshen up the syllabus? Are you tired of making students pay for subscription resources? Do your students need some inspiration and direction to help them take their business ideas to a competition? and our parent organization, (Entrepreneur and Innovation Exchange) has a library of commentaries, case studies, exercises, practitioner-oriented articles and video interviews with family business scholars, practitioners, and successful entrepreneurs. All are interesting, useful and perhaps the best part, free. These resources are made possible by the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation -- a charitable venture established by Best Buy Founder Dick Schulze. One of Dick's missions is to improve the success rate of new businesses, and strives to bring new and aspiring entrepreneurs and family businesses the best information possible about running a business successfully. Dick also realizes the important role of educators in supporting new entrepreneurs and family business members, which is why other articles focus on teaching methods and classroom exercises. And an initiative that launched in 2017, e-Fest®, is a business idea competition specifically for undergraduates. Our competition in April 2017 celebrated 25 student finalist teams and awarded more than $250,000 to more than 20 high performing student teams.
