At 2econd Generation Entrepreneur Association (2GHK), we embrace the renowned 3-Circle Model as a guiding framework to empower and strengthen family businesses in Hong Kong. Developed by Harvard Business School professor Renato Tagiuri and John Davis, this model recognizes the critical interplay between three essential components: Family, Business, and Ownership. By understanding and harmonizing the dynamics within these circles, 2GHK supports the long-term success and sustainability of family businesses.
