The Bailey Program for Family Enterprise

The Bailey Program for Family Enterprise is a resource hub for family businesses and family offices to learn and connect with others dedicated to sustainable growth and multigenerational success.

We provide workshops, certificates and roundtable networking events to support your family legacy in the phase you are in–as you build, grow, transition, sustain and innovate. Our expert faculty teach a leading-edge multidisciplinary approach to the 10 Domains of Family Wealth (financial and relational), equipping your family with the tools to navigate complex dynamics and thrive together. You can expect to learn about values and communication, governance, succession planning, investment management, philanthropy and other important topics.

Established in 2019 thanks to the generous gift from the Paul T. Bailey estate, the program is housed in the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver, and is the first comprehensive family business program in the Colorado region. We invite you to get involved by joining as a founding member or supporting our work for regional economic growth and the public good.
