This fall, Endeavor Miami is celebrating three years of helping connect high-impact entrepreneurs in the region with talent, capital and mentorship. Launched in 2013 as Endeavor’s first-ever expansion into the United States, and with backing from the Knight Foundation and a strong local board, Endeavor Miami has earned recognition for its contribution to the local economy in publications such as the Miami Herald, which profiled the office’s impact this month.
“We need to take a pause and acknowledge we’ve made progress, but there is still so much to do. This is a long-term play,” Endeavor Miami Managing Director Laura Maydón said in a statement to the Miami Herald. “The sooner more stakeholders come together to support companies that are growing, the better position we will be in. Everyone has a place in this ecosystem.”
Since its launch, Endeavor Miami has screened 265 companies, including 45 this year to date. Today, the office supports the growth of 15 companies led by 24 entrepreneurs, which, together are expected to generate more than $100 million in revenue and over 1,500 jobs, contributing to the sustained, long-term, economic success of the South Florida region. These entrepreneurs, spanning a range of industries, from food and beverage to healthcare and technology, have benefited from more than 1,000 hours of donated mentorship as well as programs run by EY, Bain & Company, and Harvard, Stanford and Northwestern business schools.
Miami Endeavor Entrepreneurs join the more than 1,300 others from 25 countries around the world, gaining access to a global network of resources to help scale their businesses, multiply their impact, and pay it forward to successive generations of high-impact founders.
