Our Mission

Endeavor transforms emerging countries by establishing
High-Impact
Entrepreneurship
as the leading force for sustainable economic development.

High-Impact Entrepreneurs create thriving companies that employ hundreds, even thousands of people, and generate millions in wages and revenues. And they have the power to inspire countless others as leading role models. Together, these entrepreneurs hold the key to sustained economic growth in emerging markets.

High-Impact Entrepreneurs dream of becoming the next great success story, but having launched in emerging countries, face considerable barriers to growth:

  • — Cost of Failure
  • — Lack of role models
  • — Limited Management expertise
  • — Lack of contacts or mentors
  • — Lack of trust
  • — Limited access to smart capital

Endeavor helps High-Impact Entrepreneurs unleash their potential by providing an unrivaled network of seasoned business leaders, who provide the key ingredients to entrepreneurial success:

Mentorship Networks
Strategic Advice Inspiration

Before Endeavor the word entrepreneurship was not in the dictionary in Portuguese or Arabic. Endeavor Entrepreneurs did not know they were entrepreneurs until they entered the Endeavor Search & Selection process. We’ve come far in thirteen years since the Argentine taxi cab driver with a PHD in physics inquired “How can I possibly start my own company when I don’t even have a garage?”
