Endeavor Outliers

Each year Endeavor recognizes the best performing, fastest-growing companies from the Endeavor community as Endeavor Outliers. The aim is both to shine a spotlight on exceptional companies being built in unexpected places and to curate an exclusive community where founders can connect, support each other, and inspire the next generation through a series of in-person events and online programming.


Connect with other High-Impact founders

Outliers are Endeavor Entrepreneurs who are either (a) currently leading the fastest-growing scaleup companies, or (b) have meaningfully exited their companies and now serve as role models and mentors to the next generation of entrepreneurs.

A glance into this year’s Outliers class:

  • $31 billion raised
  • 1.3 million jobs generated across 33 countries worldwide
  • 63 businesses valued at $1B+
  • 30 exits, 14 publicly listed companies, and 16 acquired companies with a combined enterprise value of $18B

Learn from a community of peers

Many entrepreneurs in underserved markets are the first to take this path in their countries and don’t have role models to look up to. Outliers brings together other founders at similar stages of their leadership journey to share experiences, learn from one another, hear from world-class speakers, and ultimately grow as leaders.

  • Circles bring together 6-8 founders to work through challenges in a supportive environment

Build meaningful relationships

If anything can make the founder’s journey a little less hard and lonely, it’s having a community of peers they can turn to. Outliers combines in-person events and virtual programming to create intimate opportunities for entrepreneurs to interact with each other and top mentors in Endeavor’s network.

  • The Annual Retreat brings the community together in person
  • Curated roundtable sessions feature top business leaders

Inspire the next generation of founders

Outliers embody Endeavor’s Pay-It-Forward mentality. Together, Endeavor Outliers have spent nearly 2,000 hours over the past two years providing mentorship and advice to other entrepreneurs. They have also invested more than $40M in the next generation of Endeavor Entrepreneurs via Endeavor Catalyst.

  • A platform for Outliers to multiply their impact by inspiring, mentoring, and reinvesting in the next generation of founders.
