What is EO?

Entrepreneurs’ Organization

The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is a Global business network of 14,000+ leading entrepreneurs in 193 chapters and 60 countries. Founded in 1987 by a group of young entrepreneurs, EO enables business owners to learn from each other, leading to greater business success and an enriched personal life.

We educate, we transform, we inspire and we offer invaluable resources in the form of global events, leadership-development programs, an online entrepreneur forum and executive education opportunities, among other offerings designed for personal and professional growth.

The EO New Jersey Chapter was established in 1998 and is one of the highest performing EO chapters in North America. As a designated large-size chapter, members are able to tap into a wealth of entrepreneurship resources not available elsewhere.

At its core, EO is an international collection of like-minded entrepreneurs focused on business growth, personal development and community engagement. In addition to our mission, vision and core values, our global makeup is comprised of nearly 14,000+ unique member stories.


To engage leading entrepreneurs to learn and grow.

Core Values


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.


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.


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.


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.
