Last week I was talking with my brother who owns the world’s most successful online spanish dictionary company. Early in the conversation the topic of the Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO) came up as he was meeting with the local Washington D.C. chapter. He wanted to understand the value of the organization and whether or not it was worth the $4k/year for membership.
Here’s some of the value of EO:
- Peer-to-peer experience sharing through amazing forums
- Local social and educational events with the highest signal-to-noise ratio of any events I’ve been to in the past 10 years
- Regional, national, and global learning events with renowned speakers and attendees
- Secondary benefits like a private portal to ask other members questions (including members of YPO and WPO), access to the best doctors in the country on short notice, and unpublished PR opportunities
For me, having a peer group of other entrepreneurs with $1 million+ business for intimate small group experiences as well as larger social and learning events fills a big hole that I had. I highly recommend EO and can’t say enough good things about it. As with anything, the more you put into it the more you get out of it.
What else? Have you had experience with EO?

David, does your brother know of the tech community in DC? If not, I’ll give the contacts.
Thanks Denis. He’s just starting to get involved but it would be great for you to meet with him and share what you like in the DC tech community.
The quickest way would be joining the DC Tech Facebook group/mailing list (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_144795392232569) and the MeetUp.com group (http://www.meetup.com/DC-Tech-Meetup/).
