EO Accelerator

For entrepreneurs < $1m

EO Accelerator (EOA) is for business owners running companies generating between US$250K and US$1M in revenue per year. The mission at EOA is to empower new entrepreneurs with the tools, accountability and community to grow and master their business aggressively.

First-stage entrepreneurs face new challenges every day. It could be determining how you're going to fulfil a rush of new orders, deciding how you will move into new markets, or figuring out how you're going to make payroll. And sometimes, you may wish you had an instruction manual for your business.

At EO, we get it because we've all been there before.

The EOA Programme will empower you with the skills to make yourself a better entrepreneur and leader.

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

Starting with Accelerator in 2019, thanks to EO, I scaled my market research agency to become a full EO member in 2020. I’ve experienced the benefits of Accelerator first hand, and I’m keen that other ambitious businesses get the most out of it too. Despite most of my membership being through lockdown, the learning and networking opportunities have been fantastic. I’m excited to meet new EOA members, help them grow, and celebrate their success.
