Entrepreneurs' Organization doesn't need an entire week to make their mark on aspiring entrepreneurs -- with EO 24 they seek to accomplish the goal in just 24 hours.

EO, one of the Global Partners of Global Entrepreneurship Week, is a global network of more than 7,300 business owners in 42 countries. On November 19, chapters around the world will conduct events designed to drive business take-home value around growth and innovation. Guided by the theme "Grow Your Business," these events will in most cases be open to the chapter's entire business community and designed to positively impact the entire entrepreneurial continuum, from college entrepreneurs and startups through established small businesses and large enterprises.

Events are already planned in New Zealand, Germany and the Netherlands, and a conference with social media experts Peter Shankman and Chris Brogan in New York City. The largest event will be in San Francisco, where the theme of "Think Globally, Act Locally" will be celebrated with leading fashion designers, culinary experts and more. In South Florida, the EO Accelerator will also be launched on the 19th, which will help first stage entrepreneurs take their ideas to the next level.

Outside of EO24, Entrepreneurs' Organization has a number of other exciting events planned during Global Entrepreneurship Week. The Portland, Seattle and Vancouver chapters will team up for an inspirational event with blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer that will end with a four mile hike to the summit of Mount Si in North Bend, Washington. In Atlanta, the third installment of the "Back Stage Pass: Cultural Atlanta" series will feature a world premiere concert with Wynton Marsalis' newly commissioned "American Symphony."

EO is also behind the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards, the premiere competition for students who own and operate businesses while in school. Regional and national competitions will be taking place over the next few weeks, with $10,000 awarded to a Global Winner during the Week, at a three-day event hosted by the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Mo.
