Entrepreneur Selection & Growth

Working with a network of local business leaders, Endeavor indentifies and screens thousands of entrepreneur candidates running
high-growth businesses. Several times each year, an international selection panel of experienced business people gathers to elect a new class of Endeavor Entrepreneurs - those individuals who demonstrate fulfillment of a specific set of values and conditions that match the organization’s expectations and goals. Once selected, Endeavor provides high-impact entrepreneurs customized services to meet their specific challenges. Endeavor’s services include connecting Endeavor Entrepreneurs with local and global mentors,
managerial talent from blue-chip companies and top business schools, access to difficult-to-penetrate networks and several new targeted services for companies seeking venture capital/private equity and/or companies in later growth stages. At the same time, Endeavor has built a peer network of entrepreneurs who provide a strong, supportive community to face any challenge.

Population(s) Served

After thorough analyses of target markets, Endeavor launches operations in one ore more markets per year. Endeavor works with top-business leaders who form the board of directors and become champions of Endeavor's work. Endeavor also recruits exceptional talent to run each new office.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Endeavor (http://www.endeavor.org) is the first organization focusing on the “scale-up" not “start-up" phase of entrepreneurship, which is increasingly recognized as the key to job creation. Headquartered in New York with 400+ employees across 28 countries throughout Latin America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe and the United States, Endeavor identifies mentors, and co-invests in “high-impact entrepreneurs" - those business innovators demonstrating the greatest potential for growth.

Since 1997, Endeavor has screened over 50,000 candidates and handpicked more than 1,800 entrepreneurs who have created 2.7m+ jobs.

Endeavor's model has five key segments: Launch, Select, Support, Multiply and Give Back.

Launch
In new cities, regions and countries with our pull model led by local private sector leaders who pledge their time and money to open an affiliate.

Select
A portfolio of High-Impact Entrepreneurs that will drive innovation, produce role models, and maximize wealth and job creation.

Support
the growth of Endeavor Entrepreneurs' companies throughout their business "life-cycle" by developing and providing a comprehensive, unparalleled array of demand-driven services.

Multiply
the impact of Endeavor companies by showcasing Endeavor Entrepreneurs as national icons to influence education and policy reform, spur local venture capital, and inspire others to take risks.

Give-back
programs contribute to local operations. Our goal is to become a self-sustaining operation through Endeavor Entrepreneurs' give-back and other market-driven revenues.
