Share Article

“EO Accelerator” is a not-for-profit program in which established UK entrepreneurs voluntarily give early-stage entrepreneurs the tools they need to take their businesses to the next level.

The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) announced today its first UK-based program for helping small businesses to grow. The program, Accelerator, has been running overseas for more than ten years, with 39 programs in eleven countries. However, this month sees its first UK-based program. Accelerator takes businesses with gross annual incomes ranging between US$250,000 and US$1 million (that’s £160,000–£640,000), and gives them support from the CEOs of larger, more established businesses. (Once businesses exceed US$1 million, they become eligible to apply to be full members of EO.)

“For years, overseas participants of EO Accelerator have increased their annual revenues, their workforce and transformed into leaders of their industry,” said Richard Guyver, Chairman of the UK Accelerator, “We are excited to see the programme come to the UK.”

The program’s extensive curriculum addresses key issues that impact prospective businesses, including strategic planning, sales and marketing, human resources and finance. Other benefits of Accelerator include:

  • Structured learning around all aspects of running and growing a business.
  • Networking opportunities with other entrepreneurs, including some of the UK’s leading business owners.
  • Tips and strategies for increasing capital.
  • Practical feedback to help you grow sales effectively.
