INTERGEN (Since 01 Sep 2018)
The intergenerational family businesses as a stress management instrument
for entrepreneurs

The main purpose of the INTERGEN academic consortium is to support different efforts of many people to preserve the family in a respectful way, using the following example as a visualization of the intergenerational business linkages:
Exaple 1:
- the grandparents produce grape;
- the parents produce wine (including the grape of their parents);
- the children create an on-line shop and they also sell the grape and the wine of their relatives.
Example 2:
- the grandparents produce apples;
- the parents produce apple juice (including the fruits of the grandparents;
- the children create an on-line shop and they also sell the apples and the apple juice of their relatives.
This new theory has been originally described in:
Pavlov, D., Sheresheva, M., Perello, M. (2017). The Intergenerational Small Family Enterprises as Strategic Entities for the Future of the European Civilization - A Point of View // Journal of Entrepreneurship & Innovation, 2017, issue 9, p.p. 26-38, ISSN 1314-0175.

To study how the neoclassic concept of the intergenerational family businesses could be used as an instrument to manage the entrepreneurial stress.

The main tasks of the project are:
(1) To study the general attitude of the students for their career development.
(2) To study the influence of this new concept on their entrepreneurial attitudes.
