WHY JOIN

See how EO helps entrepreneurs achieve their full potential.

The EO Experience

Since its inception in 1987, members of EO have been building a global network to serve the unique needs of the complete entrepreneur. This innovative process has sustained a growing organization that has withstood—even flourished—during times of economic uncertainty, and now with a global footprint in more than 61 countries.

For entrepreneurs and founders of businesses making more than US$1 million in annual revenue, there is no better opportunity to learn and grow than the one that is provided to you through membership in EO. The EO experience and benefits are provided within a chapter model. Here are our current ways to connect with peers in a chapter setting:

Join a local chapter

You may have heard about EO from a trusted business connection or perhaps you’ve been lucky enough to attend an event as a guest. Membership with a local chapter will immerse you into the local entrepreneurial community and connect you with 6-8 thought-leaders and peers monthly in a Forum. We have 200 local chapters located among 63 countries and this list is ever expanding!

Join a Forum


The highest-rated benefit of EO membership, a Forum fosters peer-to-peer sharing between members in a trusted and confidential environment. Looking to draw from the expertise that only another entrepreneur would have? Forum offers a format where the complex intersections between your business, personal life and community engagement can all be addressed head-on, so that you can achieve fulfillment in all of your endeavors.


Learn at Chapter Events


EO is bringing the world’s leading speakers and visionaries to your doorstep. Once you’ve joined a chapter, you will be invited to a series of local events designed to cover a broad array of topics in varying formats and venues. There’s no limit to the ingenuity and innovation at our chapter events, so go ahead and dream big.

Network at global events


Learn from today’s leading business minds at global events, where you can network with your likeminded peers while enjoying once-in-a-lifetime experiences in exotic destinations.

Become a MyEO champion

Looking to share your passions with other entrepreneurs? MyEO is the only entrepreneur program that allows EO Members to curate a tailor-made experience around their specific interests and passions by creating MyEO Groups and Events so they may get the exact experience they value.

Embark on a new leadership journey

 

Our member base is actively involved in the leadership and stewardship of the entire organization. In this expanding network, opportunities to enhance your own leadership are frequent and beneficial. Entrepreneurs who want to become engaged in order to create an enhanced local, regional or global experience, are rewarded with leadership development and executive-education programs designed to make them leaders among leaders. EO provides a path to leadership that includes, among others, local committees, board positions, regional councils, global advisory task forces and committees in specialized functions. Even our Global Board of Directors is comprised entirely of members.
