Online conference
Owners as Strategists 2023


The 3rd conference Owners as Strategists, held online on June 27, 2023, aims to facilitate the development of new theory and stimulate discussions about how ownership shapes firm strategy. The theoretical and practical need of studying ownership in relation to firm strategy is pressing as ownership around the world is (again) becoming progressively concentrated in the hands of owners such as entrepreneurs, families, cooperatives, financial asset managers, foundations and states.

The goal of the conference is to bring together a diverse set of scholars with an interest in ownership, governance, and strategy to address the overarching question of what the role of ownership is for firm strategy and governance, with particular focus on the responsibility of owners in today’s economy. We welcome submissions in the following fields: corporate governance, institutional ownership, family business, foundations, state ownership, entrepreneurship, venture capital and private equity.
