The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is a global business network of 12,000+ business owners in 173 chapters and 54 countries. Founded in 1987 by a group of young entrepreneurs, EO enables small and large business owners to learn from each other, leading to greater business success and an enriched personal life. Our vision is to build the world’s most influential entrepreneur community, which aligns with our mission of supporting entrepreneurial education and engaging entrepreneurs to learn and grow.


Trust & Respect

In business, as in life, integrity is everything. Within our organization integrity goes deeper than just the game rules— it is our code of conduct. Confidence, respect and inclusiveness are imperatives. Non-judgment and non-solicitation are non-negotiable.


Boldly Go

This is what we’ve done all our lives. It’s what allows us to grow and take risks. It inspires us to never give up, celebrating failures as well as successes. It’s an innate instinct born out of courage, creativity and eternal optimism. 


Thirst For Learning

Our most valuable asset is wisdom gained through our appetite for knowledge and the transformational experiences that we share with our peers. A thirst for learning leads to an open mind. A thirst for learning leads to an open mind, and an open mind leads to greater opportunity.



Make A Mark

We are not afraid of challenging conventions. We are in control of our destiny, and with that comes a great responsibility. To build value. To make a difference. To leave a legacy. We are willing to put in the effort to transform any experience into a positive one for all. 



Cool defines our approach, our attitude and our experiences. As we carve our own path, we are reinventing the experience of what it means to be an entrepreneur. We are vibrant and progressive. We commit to forward thinking. We commit to innovation. We commit to cool.

EO Cincinnati


How much are membership dues?
Total recurring annual dues are $5,100. New members must also pay a one time initiation fee of $4,000. These figures include both your EO Global and EO Cincinnati Chapter dues and fees.  As a new member, you will receive a $500 credit to use towards registration of a regional event of your choice. Dues are pro-rated based on the EO fiscal year (ending July 1). 

Is this a networking thing? Is it like BNI?
Not at all. Networking will naturally happen, and members sometimes do business with each other, but we have a strict non-solicitation policy. You don't have to worry about 'being sold to' at any of our events. 
Are you similar to Vistage?
There are a few main differences. First, EO members are only owners of companies. We're all entrepreneurs and because of that we understand some of the struggles that a V.P. of Sales, for instance, might not. Secondly, we're a non-profit while Vistage is for-profit. We're run by volunteer member board who's only mission is to put your membership dues to work for you. Third, EO is focused on the whole entrepreneur, while Vistage has a mostly business focus.  Lastly, our membership dues are significantly less than Vistage. 

Am I required to attend events?
Not required, but strongly encouraged. One of our core values is 'Thirst for learning,' so if you're not interested in our events than you're missing much of your membership value. 

Do I have to Participate in forum?
Forum is the number one reason our members love EO. You can chose to be a member 'at large' but again, you'll be missing much of the value of  your membership. 

What don't my dues cover?
There are some member-run events (called MyEO Events) that are self pay, but most chapter sponsored local events are covered as a part of your dues; and we usually include food and drinks as well. Our regional and global events, as well as some of our advanced university training (eg The Harvard Executive Training Program) are also self pay but may be subsidized by EO Global.
