Members of EO must be the owner, founder or majority stakeholder of a business earning a minimum of US$1 million in the most recent fiscal year. Venture-backed companies must have either privately-raised funds of at least US$2 million or publicly-raised funds of US$5 million, and a minimum of 10 employees.
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. The number of events a month vary by chapters, but most chapters range from 2-4 events per month.
The more you participate, the more value you get! If you participate in Forum, your commitment is once-a-month for an in-person meeting.
Each year, your chapter will conduct an annual requalification. If you sell your business or dip below the requirements, we have options for you to continue in membership.
We encourage you to review all of the EO benefits and learn more about the EO experience.
Member fees comprise both Global and chapter dues. Global dues are currently US$2400 (plus a one-time US$2500 initiation fee) and are prorated based on the fiscal month you join. Local dues vary by chapter, but range between $1800-$3500, inquire for details.

“You have to invite it in. You have to make sure there’s room in your closet, so if your head is full or your life…
Feel like you’re out of your league and faking it? So do most entrepreneurs.
No matter how many courses you take or how much time you’ve put into your career, at some point, you run into those times when you feel like you are a fake. That others can clearly see that you know less than them, that you aren’t the success or the expert or even the entrepreneur you claim to be.
