Dear EO Member:
We are launching a
brand new initiative at EO Calgary
built to help budding entrepreneurs break through the glass ceiling of $1M USD
in sales. This gives them the chance to join us in EO Calgary and us the
opportunity to give back.
We do this through
facilitated learning, Accountability Groups (similar to forums), and EO
networking events. Our goal is to launch with 15 members on October 28th.
We have 7 accepted members running companies that range from optical
stores to Internet security to executive plane grooming. We also have two
moderators signed up and 7 founding sponsors.
This has been a
grass roots effort with many members of EO Calgary stepping up to get involved
through sponsorship or agreeing to moderate or participate on the committee to
make this all happen.
- Almost every new member has come to us by way of referral from an EO member.
Special thank you
to Andrew Watts, Pat Ottman, Derrick Hunter, Louis Stack, Peter Dorey,
and Wendy Coombs (if I missed anyone, I apologize) who have all recommended prospective
Each of us involved
in Accelerator agrees we would have benefitted from the opportunity to meet,
discuss and learn from entrepreneurs who have already been there.

next wave of Calgary
entrepreneurs get there faster and we need your help.
