What is Catalyst?
Developed in 2010, Catalyst is an entrepreneurial skill development program created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs providing the confidence, tools, support, and skills needed to thrive in today’s business environment.
How long does the program last?
The program typically kicks off in August and starts with 12 classes taught by Michael Burcham over the course of 6 months. Each class is three hours long, with both instruction and small group breakouts. Following the classroom portion, you will then be trained and placed in a forum group for 12 months.
How do I become a member of EO's Catalyst program?
EO will provide two opportunities to attend informational events in July. You are asked to attend an event and then apply here for membership.
What are the qualifications for membership?
You must be the founder, co-founder, or controlling shareholder of a business with at least $250,000 in gross annual sales.
What is the cost for membership?
The cost of the 18-month program is $3000. This includes all materials and training, as well as being wined and dined at many EO events throughout your membership.
What is the time commitment?
Each of the 12 classes is three hours long, and then following the classes you will attend a day-long forum training. Forums are typically 3-4 hours long, once per month.
