The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and Microsoft are pleased to announce that they have created a strategic relationship in the United States, effective February 2013. The newly formed alliance will offer benefits to more than 4,000 U.S. business owners.
“Our relationship with Microsoft provides entrepreneurs in EO with expert content, cutting-edge technology and access to Microsoft facilities nationwide,” said Samer Kurdi, the Chairman of EO’s Global Board of Directors. “The support Microsoft will be giving to our local chapters will enhance small business technology training and provide resources that will positively impact our member companies and their communities.”
“The resources that EO and Microsoft have to share with small business owners will fast track their success and our economy,” said Allison Saltzer, Senior Business Development Manager of Strategic Influencers at Microsoft Corporation. “Microsoft recognizes the crucial role that entrepreneurs play in improving the quality of life for everyone through job creation, innovation and building communities. EO is a perfect fit for Microsoft to continue carrying out our mission to help people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential.”
The Entrepreneurs’ Organization has been a positive force within business communities around the world, helping to fuel economic development and job creation by driving learning and growth within its members’ companies. Globally, EO’s members account for more than US $160 billion in annual revenues and employ more than 1.7 million workers. Forging a strong relationship with American Microsoft that focuses on providing value to these business owners will create additional opportunities for them to grow and succeed.
