Family-owned companies – founded by one generation handing over leadership to the next generation – different perceptions of success; different thoughts on which way to move the company forward; learn from the past or just look ahead – all on the minds of these leaders. BootUP was honored to be included in Real Change’s NexGen Learning Expedition including a variety of iconic French, family-owned companies, stemming from an assortment of industries including industrial manufacturing, e-commerce, supply chain management, and gaming and entertainment. Mukul Agarwal, CEO and Founder of BootUP Ventures, spoke with this multi-generational group about how to navigate intergenerational differences these entrepreneurs may face. Each company brought in current leading family executives along with familial successors. Mukul’s talk about the entrepreneurial mindset, what innovation really is, how to move from success to significance, balancing this all from the perspective of leadership, family responsibility, and expectations, inspired the group and led to an engaging dialogue throughout the evening. These 24 families came with the goal of bringing a new way of thinking to their medium and large size businesses to help innovate together for a better world, and BootUP Founder & CEO Mukul Agarwal certainly delivered, guiding them along the path of entrepreneurial mindset and innovation.
