Chicago Family Business Council

The Chicago Family Business Council (CFBC) helps family businesses and other closely held companies achieve their business goals through a unique peer support system and related educational programs that provide growth strategies for chief executives, their employees, their families and their businesses.

Founded in 1993, CFBC began operating under the umbrella of DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business in 2012, bringing its myriad programs and services to DePaul students, alumni and the local business community in the heart of the city’s Loop. The center works closely with DePaul’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center to provide educational programs for students and local businesses.
