EO Core Values
As the world’s only peer-to-peer network exclusively for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs, the Entrepreneurs' Organization helps transform the lives of those who transform the world.
With more than 16,500 diverse leaders in 60+ countries and growing, EO membership helps entrepreneurs achieve their full potential through the power of life-enhancing connections, shared experiences and collaborative learning. We are not-for-profit and responsible stewards of our members' investments.
EO's community of business leaders has been committed to helping each other succeed since 1987. Members gain access to the world’s top experts, grow beyond their perceived limits and refine and realize their goals in life, and in business.
In 2020, we introduced a new brand look and identity that better reflects our community today. At the same time, we examined and refined our purpose, ambition and organizational values, keeping what remains true and releasing what no longer fit.
Our values speak to who we are as an organization. They shape our decision making, inspire our teamwork and guide our messaging.

Trust and respect
Each of us is unique and equal. We listen with an open mind and appreciation for different points of view. Through trust and respect we create a space where everyone can be their complete, authentic selves.
Thirst for learning
We have an insatiable curiosity. Learning is a big part of why entrepreneurs choose EO. It is through curiosity that we grow and widen our horizons. It's more than a class or a workshop—it is about asking the right questions, trying new things and having curiosity about other members, their life experiences and their perspectives.
Think big, be bold
We innovate, take risks and see opportunity in a challenge. We want to make the world a better place – for our teams, our families, our communities, and for humankind. We think big, we are bold. We want to make a difference beyond ourselves and we see entrepreneurship as a way to create a better world for all.
Together we grow
We are committed to each other’s success and well-being. We build deep human connections across rooms, cities, countries and continents. Our community is inclusive and we value diversity. We are from different cultures, religions and backgrounds, but EO binds us together.
