Membership Benefits

​The Entrepreneurs Association (EA) is made up of about 100 privately-held business owners that regularly assemble within The Edward M. Muldoon Center for Entrepreneurship at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. Membership in the Entrepreneurs Association offers:


  • Networking. Opportunities at educational and social events, and through a private directory of members, to collaboratively grow financially and personally.

  • Educational Seminars. Opportunities every month to learn about topics of current business or personal interest.

  • Student Engagement. Opportunities to engage and mentor John Carroll University students, and recruit them for internships and employment.

Membership is invitation only and is limited to principal shareholders or operating officers of privately-owned companies in Northeast Ohio that have been in business for at least five years and have a minimum of $1.0 million of revenue.

Memberships are also available to service professionals who have been in their practice for at least 15 years. This membership class is limited to 20% of the overall membership.

Applicants do not need to be affiliated with John Carroll University and are nominated by a current member.

Members seek to grow their businesses while being a force for positive change. Members share a commitment to entrepreneurship, a love for learning, and a willingness to collaborate with one another to discover business opportunities. Members build strong relationships with a sense of camaraderie, which ultimately works to improve their businesses.
