The Kenan Institute’s annual Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Conference in Palm Beach, Florida, shone a spotlight on the Endeavor network this month, featuring Endeavor Entrepreneurs and Endeavor staff speaking on high-impact entrepreneurship on the agenda. The two-day event, held January 31 to February 1, convened 150 thought-leaders from academia, government, and business to discuss the most pressing issues facing entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship ecosystems today.
During the event, Endeavor Miami Managing Director Laura Maydon sat on a panel on “Principled Entrepreneurship” — entrepreneurship rooted in solving problems that matter to the founder and create values for others. Laura spoke about the connection to high-impact entrepreneurship, opening up a discussion on whether they are one in the same or mutually exclusive. Endeavor Miami Entrepreneurs Jackie Baumgarten of Boatsetter and Emiliano Abramzon of Nearpod participated in a panel discussion on founding teams, sharing their own experiences of starting, and scaling, a business in Miami.
Highlights of Endeavor’s involvement also included the opportunity to share new research on the South Florida ecosystem currently in progress by Endeavor Insight in partnership with the Knight Foundation, which will be completed later this spring. Presented by Endeavor Insight researcher Maha AbdelAzim, the new project aims to highlight the greatest opportunities for supporting the growth of local scale-up entrepreneurs, and will identify industries where these entrepreneurs have had the most success in South Florida, as well as where they provide a strategic advantage relative to other parts of the country.
The Kenan Institute is an initiative of the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, seeking to foster mutual understanding and appreciation between members of the private enterprise sector, the academic community, and their government, and to encourage cooperative efforts among these groups. Endeavor is proud to be a part of these thoughtful and insightful conversations to determine the future of entrepreneurship research. View the event’s full agenda here.
