Palo Alto, California – December 12, 2016 – Endeavor selected 37 high-impact entrepreneurs representing 20 companies and 13 countries at its 68th International Selection Panel (ISP) held December 7-9 in Palo Alto, California. In total, Endeavor now supports 1,403 entrepreneurs leading 875 companies in 25 growth markets around the world. The event was Endeavor’s final ISP of 2016.
The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify innovative and driven entrepreneurs who are committed to advancing an ecosystem of entrepreneurship.
At the event, panelists from around the world interviewed entrepreneur candidates about their businesses, evaluating them on their potential for high-impact growth, and then deliberated on which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Once selected, Endeavor Entrepreneurs gain access to comprehensive customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs.
Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of creating hundreds of thousands of jobs, generating billions of dollars in revenues, and building sustainable growth models in their home countries.
“It was great to bring the network and entrepreneurs together in one of the country’s great innovation centers for the last International Selection Panel of 2016,” said Endeavor co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “It’s especially exciting to see our newest offices in the U.S., Italy, and Japan, continue to grow as we prepare to expand further in 2017.”
During the ISP, Endeavor also awarded Endeavor Brazil board member, founder of shopping comparison service Buscape, and CEO and Co-Founder of Redpoint eVentures Romero Rodrigues with the designation of Honorary Endeavor Entrepreneur, celebrating his contribution to the local ecosystem and the Endeavor Network.
