For 25 years, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) has been working hard to expand its presence in all corners of the world, launching new chapters every year in dynamic cities. This commitment to expansion is critical to our mission of becoming a global thought leader on business entrepreneurship, and every new chapter goes a long way in establishing us as the world’s elite entrepreneur community.
Launching an EO chapter is our way of tapping into the lifeline of every country— entrepreneurs! We go boldly into new markets, leaving our legacy and furthering our mission to engage leading young entrepreneurs to learn and grow through business networking and leadership development. Here is some more information about what it takes to launch an EO chapter:
Why are new chapters important to EO?
More chapters mean more members, an expanded community, more influence, more connections and greater personal and professional opportunities, resulting in an enhanced EO experience.
What are the key elements for launching a chapter?
First, EO must identify a market. Second, a member champion must be chosen. Third, EO must generate interest and visibility in the new market. Once these steps have been accomplished, EO can take the necessary measures to build out the chapter for its official launch.
How can I get involved?
If you have ties to young successful entrepreneurs, business networks, and small businesses in other cities, or if you are an EO member and would like to help the organization champion a chapter in your region, please contact Laura Johnson, EO’s Director of Global Membership Development.
