The IOEE is the first personal development Institute dedicated to recognising the profession of enterprise, entrepreneurship and enterprise support. The IOEE is inclusive and its scope is global.

The IOEE provides for its members a unique personal and enterprise development professional body where those starting running their own enterprises and those providing support to them develop themselves by answering business questions and transferring skills and knowledge to each other.

IOEE will give full member status to those people who demonstrate they possess the skills and knowledge required to start and successfully run their own enterprise and/or those that support them.
