In the theoretical part the paper highlights the most important research carried out in our country, in order to describe and diagnose the innovative processes in small and medium-sized family businesses. In turn, the empirical part consists in the author’s analysis of the two innovative family businesses located in Lodz: The Baker and Confectioner’s Trade “Jaś i Małgosia” and PHARMENA S.A. The purpose of the work is to criticize the stereotype still remaining in Poland on opportunistic, traditional, risk-averse behaviours of family firms in comparison with their non-family counterparts.
