Endeavor and Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana

In the process of restructuring his business, Emilio hired Endeavor Entrepreneur Marcus Dantus to be the CEO.

Together, the Entrepreneurs benefited from global workshops and an Entrepreneur Summit, in addition to local mentoring which helped developed the company’s corporate governance structure. They also raised capital from an investor and a government program, both facilitated by Endeavor introductions.
