2021 Events

Each of EO’s 196 chapters host a wide variety of local events designed to help members learn and grow as business leaders. Throughout the year, multiple chapters band together to create regional events that rival the best business-networking conferences in the world. Upon joining EO, you will be surrounded by entrepreneurs of all stages, all of whom are eager to make their mark.

We’re introducing a new concept this year – 2020 quarterly events. These events will feature two EO members who will speak for 20 minutes each (hence, 2020) on a powerful, meaningful 5% topic – one of the things that we can only talk to other entrepreneurs about because we understand each other.

“I just listened to it and said to myself, “Man, I really love this album.” Still, today, it just sounds so fresh. It sounds full of ideas. These guys knew what they were doing. They’re good. And they’re inventive. I haven’t heard anything this year that’s as inventive. I don’t really expect to.”
