Founded almost 20 years ago by young, energetic entrepreneurs, EO is now 6,000+ members strong with over 120 Chapters in 40 Countries around the globe. Members come from all walks of life and run companies of every type and size imaginable. The common goal amongst members is to grow their businesses, learn from others and above all, share their experiences with each other.
The sales of all EO members worldwide total more than US$81 billion. Last month, Japan was the venue of EO’s tri-annual gathering dubbed EO University. Over the course of four days, the Tokyo event provided a line-up of highly-stimulating speakers, a charged forum of discussion and idea-exchange, as well as programs of cultural immersion.
Gabor was invited to give the featured keynote presentation on Blue Ocean Strategy to the audience of 300+ leading entrepreneurs from around the world. The message of BOS is particularly relevant to EO members, as they are in the perfect position to challenge traditional industry assumptions and boundaries, as well as to create new market spaces.
