October 2019
The Kellogg Center for Family Enterprises invites sibling-operated enterprises to participate in its landmark "Sibships Study". The study, which is being conducted in collaboration with Northwestern University's Professor Eli Finkel, examines sibling relationships in family enterprises and the important roles played by spouses and significant others.

KCFE is recruiting 100 families to participate in this major research endeavour. Participation involves an online survey, completed separately by four individuals within each family: two siblings working in the business and, for each, their spouse or long-term significant other. All responses are completely confidential. Participating families will receive a selection of educational books from the Kellogg family enterprise faculty, along with a report of the study's findings.
