“Much of the growth and success of CoinX was reinforced by a combination of my EO forum, the EO network, and the opportunity to serve other EO members through leadership. I continue to be humbled and inspired by other EO members – whether in the Accelerator program, the local chapter or across the globe.” – Megan Burton
Years after building a successful business of her own, Megan Burton yearned to find like-minded entrepreneurs that could relate to the unique experiences of establishing a business, from bootstrapping a company to achieving unimaginable success. Megan already belonged to a number of leadership organizations when she came across Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), which turned out to be exactly what she had been searching for.
Megan attributes much of her growth and success as an entrepreneur to EO. When she joined in 2012, her company, CoinX, was in high growth mode, which made support from her EO community an invaluable asset. What stood out to Megan was that EO encourages and values diverse opinions while cultivating a culture of trust that gives members the opportunity to develop in a peer-to-peer learning style with true transparency. Megan’s favorite aspect of EO is her forum, which she says has been instrumental in her growth as a leader.
Megan is a pioneer in the IT security industry and founded CoinX, a fintech company that specializes in domestic and international payment processing and transfer services (money transmission), in 2004.
