The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is a global business network of 14,000-plus business owners in over 190 chapters in more than 60 countries. Founded in 1987 by a group of young entrepreneurs, EO helps small and large business owners learn from each other, leading to greater business success and enriched personal lives. Our vision is to build the world’s most influential entrepreneur community that aligns with our mission of supporting entrepreneurial education and engaging entrepreneurs so they can master new skills and grow.
As a global business-owner network and association, we help transform the lives of the entrepreneurs who transform the world. We educate, we transform, we inspire and we offer invaluable resources in the form of events, leadership-development programs, an online entrepreneur forum and business-owner education opportunities, among others, and all designed for business growth.
The Entrepreneurs’ Organization also operates the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA), the premier award program for undergraduate students who own and run businesses while attending a college or university, and Accelerator, a series of quarterly, high-impact learning events designed to provide top business owners with the tools, knowledge and skills they need to grow their businesses to more than US$1 million in annual revenue.
EO has given me a place of belonging and understanding, where the underlying assumption is confidence, trust and non-judgment. I’ve found these to be global EO values.
