It's been 20 years since a small group of Next Generation members decided to create a space of their own and generation through generation, our NxG members and leaders have nurtured the fire of a one-of-a-kind international community. 

The power of our fire comes from within and grows as we share it with others. We've seen it burn low but never disappear. Now it burns stronger than ever, and we celebrate a resilient fire that has given us hope of a thriving future. Our community stands strong, together, in the age of transition. We are welcoming, warm, powerful, and inspirational. We are fire and we will be for many more years to come. 

Celebrate with us:

Come celebrate with us in Sofia at the 16th NxG Summit - 5-11 June 2022

"United we Stand Strong” is the motto chosen by Bulgaria for the country’s 2018 presidency of the Council of the European Union. It describes what Bulgarians truly believe: that standing united together is the source of our true strength. This inspiration from our hosts this year combined with FBN’s credo “By families, for families, across generations” builds the foundation for the experience that will be offered to participants of the 16th NxG Summit in the early summer of 2022.

During this year’s summit we will explore which roles the NxGs play in order nurturing the fire of entrepreneurship and innovation within their families and family businesses as well as within the NxG community.

So come and celebrate with us in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, in June 2022 if you want to:

  • Be part of our big 20th Anniversary celebration 
  • Participate in one out of 5 amazing Learning Journeys especially designed for you to get a new and unique way of experiencing a different culture
  • Attend a tailor-made program with the participation of outstanding speakers, that will take place in an intimate and spectacular setting
