However, our current corporate governance system has compromised the stability and future of our society, explains Prof. Dr. Leen Paape in his speech. Our economy should not just be about profit and shareholder value, but about creating sustainable value, for everyone. According to Paape, it's time to broaden our view and redefine corporate governance. He calls upon society to relinquish the dominant logic and introduce system thinking, to define the long term and look for ways to allow companies to further take their place in society and strive for sustainable value creation.

The outcomes of research on innovation in family businesses debunk the myth that family businesses are not innovative. This is according to the research report by Prof. Dr. Roberto Flören, professor of family businesses at Nyenrode Business Universiteit, in collaboration with ING and NPM Capital. Family business owners are more supportive of innovation policy than owners of non-family businesses. At the same time, the study shows that when more financial resources are available, nearly one-third of family businesses will be more innovative. Family businesses are therefore on par with other types of businesses when it comes to innovation.
