Entrepreneurs' Organization is committed to supporting the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that include 17 goals and 169 targets to wipe out poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change by 2030. EO's pledge to support the SDGs further bolsters its commitment to social entrepreneurship and provides opportunities to impact the world among its global community of entrepreneurs.
On 25 and 26 June 2019, EO hosted the International Entrepreneurial Summit at the United Nations in New York City to address the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event created a platform to help shape the future of EO’s commitment to the UN as EO member leaders came together for a series of Think Tank breakout sessions, keynotes, and panel discussions. The meeting allowed EO members to discuss roles that businesses can play in achieving the SDGs, brainstormed tangible actions to tackle issues related to the key topics addressed, explored synergies across stakeholders, and educated entrepreneurs from around the world on how to engage with the SDGs in order to lead change. Tune in and listen to their stories.
