Since 1987, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) has been transforming the lives of the entrepreneurs who transform the world. As the global thought leader on entrepreneurship, EO plays an integral role in businesses, industries and the lives of leading entrepreneurs everywhere.
Get ready to discover the value of EO!
As an EO member, you’re not only a part of the global organization— you’re a part of a thriving local chapter! Entrepreneurs like you are hard at work in your local area, creating exciting chapter learning and social events, as well as special off-site activities, where you can hear and share big ideas, invest in the health of your community and become a better leader. What’s more, the peer interaction and educational opportunities at these events will help you become a well-rounded entrepreneur by expanding your network and improving upon your business knowledge
Each of EO’s 185 chapters host a wide variety of local events designed to help members learn and grow as business leaders. Throughout the year, multiple chapters band together to create regional events that rival the best business-networking conferences in the world. Upon joining EO, you will be surrounded by entrepreneurs of all stages, all of whom are eager to make a mark through “wow” events in your city. You’ve heard the buzz. Perhaps you’ve even attended an EO event.
What would you give for the ability to tap into a group of 7-10 fellow business owners who can offer you direction based on their experiences? Your Forum is designed to meet your unique needs as an entrepreneur and help you reach new measures of success and significance. Held monthly, Forum meetings allow you to dig deep, personally and professionally, in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
Moderator-trained EO members guide the sessions, which emphasize confidentiality, personal responsibility and lessons learned. Members don’t give advice; they speak from prior experience, letting you draw your own conclusions on how to best proceed. Upon joining EO, your chapter’s Forum Chair will work to get you in a Forum, and will ensure that you are placed with the right number and mix of business owners to avoid sharing the room with competitors
Our Forum program is under constant development and improvement, and new groups—like MyEO, regional and spousal Forums—are always in formation at the chapter level. In fact, we now offer five new formats in our Advanced Forum Series, all of which dive deeper into specific challenges faced by the entrepreneur. You can join a Forum in your area as a member of EO.
Held throughout the year, EO Global events combine provocative learning programs with unique resources and memorable social venues. Our signature events, EO Global Universities, as well as other offerings like our EO Global Explorations, enable you to learn from business experts, experience other cultures and build relationships with members outside of your chapter.

At the core of EO’s mission is an unrelenting commitment to helping young and experienced entrepreneurs learn and grow on a personal and professional level. As a global thought leader on entrepreneurship, we strive to support the totality of the entrepreneur, knowing full well that their journey extends beyond their business. By helping members become better business, industry, family and community leaders, we can further strengthen the global business landscape.
EO is proud to offer members the opportunity to learn at a more intense level through executive-education programming. Our programs strive to bring members to new levels of leadership in business and beyond. Through a variety of partnerships, EO challenges members’ assumptions, tests their ways of doing business and introduces them to new ways of thinking. Most important, members return to their business with fresh ideas, new skills, a toolkit of resources and a greater capacity for addressing the challenges they and their company will face.
EO Mentorship fosters relationships aimed at high-level leadership and personal development within a structured timeframe. Throughout the mentorship process, Mentees work toward goals and establish personal accountability, while Mentors support them through next-level education and engagement.
1. EO Mentorship relationships last 10-12 months, during which the Mentee and Mentor meet face-to-face for one to three hours each month to work toward setting and realizing personalized, measurable and attainable goals.
2. EO will help facilitate the application and matching process and kick off pairs at a launch event.
3. From there, Mentees drive the relationship, with an EO Mentorship Chair checking in periodically to ensure healthy progress.
4. After a year, the relationship ends with a celebration of achievements. As a way to “pay it forward,” Mentees are encouraged to serve as a Mentor to an EO Accelerator and EO GSEA participant, or another EO member.
When you were starting your business, did you ever wish you had someone to talk to who was further along in their own entrepreneurial journey? Now you can do that for someone else! Be a Mentor and share your knowledge with a Mentee to help them gain a new outlook on their goals and business.
Sometimes it is difficult to see your business from the outside. Let your Mentor give you the 10,000-foot view you’re missing. As a Mentee, you can take control of your growth in business and beyond by working with a Mentor to achieve goals and gain fresh perspectives
The Entrepreneurs’ Organization is a network of more than 12,000+ visionaries, experts and innovators. You could leverage their collected experiences and knowledge when you face an unexpected challenge!
A lifetime of learning is now at your fingertips through EO Connect - an online platform designed to support your personal and professional needs through immediate member-to-member connection.

Your direct connection to the best healthcare
For more than 25 years, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization has been helping members learn and grow as business, community, family and industry leaders. While entrepreneurial growth is at the forefront of everything EO does, equally as important is providing easy access to the resources needed to sustain successful and healthy personal lives. One way EO does this is through the Healthnetwork Foundation, an invaluable tool available to every EO member around the world.
EO members can call Healthnetwork for unparalleled VIP access to more than 30 of the most highly ranked hospitals in the U.S. Healthnetwork’s medical coordinators promptly connect you with the right specialists at the best hospitals. This compassionate care is available for members, their spouses, parents and children. Members outside of the U.S. can also utilize Healthnetwork by seeking an initial diagnosis; expert second-opinion appointment; executive physical; mental health treatment; and customized medical research
We understand entrepreneurs like you are busy and often cannot find the time to travel to an EO event. This is where EO’s Virtual Learning can bridge that gap, providing live and on-demand learning from the comfort of your home, office or even on the road.
Members now have an opportunity to learn and grow with transformational EO content from anywhere around the world. Tap into live streams from our EO Global Universities, attend a webinar or discover valuable content in our on-demand library to build a global entrepreneurial experience like none other.
