BEIRUT – July 27, 2017 – Endeavor selected 16 entrepreneurs leading 12 companies from 10 countries at the 73rd International Selection Panel (ISP) held July 24-26, in Beirut, Lebanon.
The selection panel also welcomed Ken Njoroge, the first Endeavor Entrepreneur from the newly launched Endeavor Kenya office, to the network.
Endeavor now supports 1,512 entrepreneurs leading 944 companies in 30 growth markets around the world. Panelists at the event, hosted by Endeavor Lebanon, included top business leaders and investors who were drawn from Endeavor’s extensive network of board members, mentors, and supporters.
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.
“Endeavor is all about connecting global leaders and entrepreneurs to build a thriving network,” said Linda Rottenberg, Endeavor co-founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to have hosted the ISP in Lebanon, which boasts an impressive entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, and we’re excited to welcome our first Endeavor Entrepreneur from Kenya! As Endeavor celebrates 20 years, it’s amazing to see the global entrepreneurship community we’ve built continue to expand to new frontiers.”
In Beirut, 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 Brooklyn, New York City (September 11-13), Sofia, Bulgaria (October 23-25), and Miami (December 11-13).
