The Bailey Program for Family Enterprise

The Bailey Program for Family Enterprise provides exceptional education, impactful community, research and advocacy to benefit the public good. Family businesses and family offices build relevant skills and meaningful connections for the long-term success of their enterprise and wellbeing of their family across generations.

The program was established in 2019 thanks to the generous gift from the Paul T. Bailey estate. It is the first comprehensive family business program in the Colorado region and is housed at the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver.

Participate in 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. We invite family enterprises and their advisors to join as a founding member.
