Ideas and actions to achieve your full potential

What our members say

Portrait René Wiertz

René Wiertz

CEO 3T cycling

«After founding 3T, I found myself feeling very lonely. Many of my friends didn’t really understand my worries about building a company. I was looking for peers that could really understand how an entrepreneur’s life looks like. In EO I found this ‘home’ with like-minded people who give me lots of support, energy, motivation and inspiration to go on the way of building a great business. »

IC Bellagio

«Founding my own company was both an exciting and lonely time. Not having people who could truly relate to the ups and downs, joys and disappointments and understand my crazy work hours and dedication to my cause was a challenge. Fortunately a colleague from New Zealand introduced me to EO and how it had helped her. That was the start of a new beginning. The opportunity to share in a totally safe environment and learn from like-minded Entrepreneurs has been so fundamental for myself, family and business. »

QRP International

«Entrepreneurs are a strange species of people and you only realize it until you are one of them. Lonely, driven by their own dreams, thriving for freedom, they are often misunderstood and so I felt. I needed fresh feedback: not new sales, new contacts, new leads, new network, but new ideas to make my business a great business. I attended EMP (Entrepreneurial Master Program) at the MIT in Boston as part of my EO membership and it has given myself and my business the edge to become a great business. »
