University of Connecticut Family Business Program
Each year, the University of Connecticut Family Business Program pays tribute to Connecticut’s most successful family firms. The Connecticut Family Business of the Year Awards ceremony is a prestigious way to recognize and honor those family businesses that embody core family values and the best of American free enterprise. The awards are a celebration of the many contributions made by family firms – Connecticut’s most effective mechanism for creating jobs, security and wealth.
Winners are chosen by a panel of judges comprised of industry experts, academicians and peers and are evaluated based on: Business success, positive family and business linkage, multi-generational family involvement, dynamic contributions to the community and industry, and innovative business practices or strategies.
