A global peer-to-peer network called Entrepreneurs’ Organization plans to launch a Milwaukee chapter.
Established in 1987, EO has 179 chapters in 57 countries, with 13,000 total members. Business owners share advice and best practices on their entrepreneurship journeys. The organization also has smaller peer groups of seven to 10, annual global events, chapter learning events, executive education, mentorship, leadership training, an accelerator program and student entrepreneur awards.
Entrepreneurs apply for membership to the organization. Members must be an owner, founder or majority stakeholder of a business with $1 million or more in annual revenue. Venture-backed startups must have raised at least $2 million in private funds or $5 million in public funds, and have at least 10 employees.
Ajay Goel is leading the charge in Milwaukee, and there’s a team of about 20 EO employees worldwide helping him find members and launch and market the chapter, he said. Read the full story here.
