Washington, DC, USA (23 January, 2017) – The Washington, DC chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), celebrated EO’s 30th Anniversary with a commemorative event at the St. Regis this past weekend.

EO’s Global Chairman, Brian Brault said, “As a long-standing member of EO, I have been privileged to learn from and work alongside entrepreneurs across the globe. Through my EO journey, I have witnessed personal triumph, the success of my peers and have seen first-hand the positive impact our global network creates for the community at large. It’s been 30 years since it all began and it’s only befitting that we celebrate this remarkable milestone with the man that took the first step to make this happen.”
