The Entrepreneurs’ Organization is the world’s only peer-to-peer network exclusively for entrepreneurs.
The Entrepreneurs’ Organization, or EO, was founded in 1987 and is the world’s only peer-to-peer entrepreneur networking organization. Backed by serial entrepreneurs such as Scott Damron, the organization currently supports 179 chapter locations in 57 countries across six continents from its U.S. headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.
EO members are not solely part of the global organization, they’re also part of smaller, thriving local chapters, within which they can connect, face to face, with entrepreneurs such as Damron. Providing a forum for entrepreneurs, mentorship, and executive education, EO also boasts a healthcare foundation, an accelerator program, and regularly hosts both chapter and global events.
Through chapter learning and social events, members and mentors alike are invited to both hear and share big ideas. Through their participation, EO members are investing in their local communities, in their local economy, and in doing so, becoming a more well-rounded entrepreneur themselves. This comes with the added benefits of an expanded personal network and an ever-improving level of business knowledge and know-how.
“EO operates on a number of core values,” explains Damron, “primarily centered around trust and respect, and a thirst for learning.”
He continues, “In business, as in life, integrity is everything at EO. Within its network, integrity goes deeper than just the game rules. It’s their code of conduct. Confidence, respect, and inclusiveness are all imperative within EO.”
“Non-judgment,” Damron adds, “and non-solicitation are non-negotiable.”
Damron shares the organization’s passion for learning wholeheartedly. “The most valuable asset for both EO mentors and members is wisdom gained via an appetite for knowledge, and the transformational experiences shared among peers,” says the experienced entrepreneur. “It’s entirely my belief that a thirst for learning leads to an open mind.”
“And with that,” he adds, wrapping up, “an open mind leads to greater opportunity.”
Scott Damron is an experienced executive and serial entrepreneur with a business background in sales, business development, and marketing strategy, with a particular focus on the healthcare and hospital sectors. Atlanta-based Damron credits his love of innovation and a forward-thinking approach to business for his success, both professionally and personally, and which has seen him and his endeavors prosper.
All EO members must agree to comply with the organization’s policies and procedures, bylaws, and code of conduct. To find out more about EO, please visit https://www.eonetwork.org/.
