Endeavor Highlighted in the Economist

Endeavor Press Release

March 2009

NEW YORK, March 16, 2009 – Endeavor, the leading non-profit supporting high-impact entrepreneurs, is highlighted in The Economist’s special 14-page report on entrepreneurship this week.

In the lead article, “Global Heroes,” [http://www.economist.com/specialreports/displayStory.cfm?story_id=13216025] Adrian Wooldridge points out that “(d)espite the downturn, entrepreneurs are enjoying a renaissance the world over.” He argues that now is entrepreneurship’s moment for “creative creation,” and points to the “numerous” opportunities the current financial crisis bears on entrepreneurs. “Microsoft, Genentech, Gap and The Limited were all founded during recessions,” Wooldridge writes. He references the Endeavor Survey carried out in eight emerging markets last November, noting that while 85% of Endeavor Entrepreneurs felt the impact of the crisis and 88% thought the worse was yet to come, on average, they believe “their businesses would grow by 31% and their workforces by 12% this year.”

In “Magic Formula,” [http://www.economist.com/specialreports/displaystory.cfm?story_id=13216077] Wooldridge highlights Endeavor Entrepreneur Bento Koike for having built “one of the world’s most successful manufacturers of wind-turbine blades, in Brazil. He says that “today’s smart entrepreneurs start global.”

In “Saving the World,” [http://www.economist.com/specialreports/displaystory.cfm?story_id=13216107] Wooldridge talks about the fact that “entrepreneurship is reshaping the voluntary sector,” by using business techniques to philanthropy. He points to South African Endeavor Entrepreneur Shane Immelman “has built a successful company by trying to bring the benefits of education to poor schoolchildren in South Africa” with his LapDesk company.
