Catapult to the next level

As a first-stage entrepreneur, you face new challenges every day. Whether it’s determining how you’re going to fill the rush of new orders, deciding how you’re going to penetrate new markets, or figuring out how you’re going to make payroll, it seems at times you find yourself wishing you had an instruction manual for your business.

EO vs. EO Accelerator

EO Accelerator is a program for early stage entrepreneurs who want to grow their business to pass the $1M mark and join EO through direct learning. The Accelerator program is for entrepreneurs with businesses making over 250K per year.

The program includes:

  • Four full day learning events planned one per quarter, led by a facilitator who is a seasoned entrepreneur 
  • Monthly Accountability Group meetings focused on goal setting and peer accountability led by an EO Member
  • Use of EO goal setting and tracking tools
  • Access to local and global EO events as shared

    For First Stage Entrepreneurs Just Like You!
    At EO Accelerator, our mission is to empower entrepreneurs with the tools, accountability and community to aggressively grow and master their business.

    Looking To Grow Your Business?

    EO Accelerator is your first step! We focus on 4 key areas.

    Create Sustainable Top Line Growth
    The keys to sustainable top-line growth are: knowing your core customer, developing a clear brand promise, and developing your BHAG® (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) for sustainable revenue growth.

    Become a Magnet for A-players Who Are Dedicated to Results
    Growth companies’ most difficult decisions involve getting the right people in the right seats. Is everyone in your company aligned, pulling their weight, and contributing as they should?

    Develop a Strategic Advantage Over Your Competitors
    One common challenge that quietly sneaks up on successful growth companies is the subtle transition from excellent, precise execution to passivity, complacency, and eventually poor execution disciplines. Tightening up your execution habits can dramatically improve your gross margins and profitability while reducing the time it takes to get work done.

    Accelerator Cash Flow to Fuel Your Growth
    The first law of entrepreneurial gravity is “Growth sucks cash.” We encourage companies to examine their cash acceleration strategies. This measures the time between spending a dollar (on marketing, design, rent, wages, etc.) and earning that dollar back throughout the company.

    These are the requirements to qualify

    Through a series of quarterly high-impact learning events and Monthly Accountability groups, Accelerator gives you tools, knowledge, and skills to aggressively grow your business and your skills, both as an entrepreneur and as a leader.

    Accelerator Curriculum

    Along with structured educational content focused on the core areas of first-stage businesses,
    the Accelerator Program affords you the unique experience of learning from and connecting with the world’s most influential entrepreneurs.

    As a program that is facilitated by the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, the Accelerator Program enables you to meet on a quarterly basis with an Entrepreneurs’ Organization member in your area. This Entrepreneurs’ Organization member, a successful entrepreneur who leads a business with at least US$1 million in annual revenue, will serve as your local Entrepreneurs’ Organization Accelerator contact, helping to guide the program locally with a committee of other Entrepreneurs’ Organization members who are dedicated to the success of the program and its participants.

    Each quarterly program will be led by a trained facilitator who has been a first-stage entrepreneur. These facilitators will bring a wealth of experience and connections to help you navigate through the content and glean as much as possible from the learning that is presented. The facilitator will answer questions from personal experience, helping you deal with the issues you face in your company with thoughtful and practical insights.

    Once accepted to the Accelerator Program, you will be able to network with other emerging entrepreneurs who can offer lessons and insights from their personal experience. The networking among Accelerator participants will be an invaluable part of the program not only in your local city but in the additional cities around the world.
