LIMA – June 30, 2017 – Endeavor selected 35 entrepreneurs leading 17 companies from 10 countries at the 72nd International Selection Panel (ISP) held June 28-30, 2017, in Lima, Peru, including the first-ever entrepreneurs from the newly launched Endeavor Ecuador office.
Endeavor now supports 1,496 entrepreneurs leading 932 companies in 30 growth markets around the world. Panelists at the event, hosted by Endeavor Peru, included top business leaders and investors who were drawn from Endeavor’s extensive network of board members, mentors, and supporters.
Entrepreneurs Santiago Peralta and Carla Barboto of Ecuadorian chocolate company Pacari interview with panelists Husodo Angkosubroto and Aldo Franciscolo during Day 2 of the ISP.
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.
“A big congratulations to entrepreneurs selected — especially to our first Ecuadorian Endeavor Entrepreneurs!” said Endeavor Co-Founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “We’re thrilled to be expanding our support of bright young founders in the region, where Endeavor was launched 20 years ago. The Peru ISP was a true testament to the strength of Endeavor’s network in Latin America, drawing panelists, board members, entrepreneurs and staff from around the continent, who all helped make the event a huge success!”
In Lima, 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.
Endeavor will host the year’s upcoming ISPs in Beirut, Lebanon (24-26), Brooklyn, New York City (September 11-13), Sofia, Bulgaria (October 23-25), and Miami (December 11-13).
