BROOKLYN, NEW YORK – September 14, 2017 – Endeavor selected 26 entrepreneurs leading 18 companies from 13 countries at the 74th International Selection Panel (ISP) held September 11-13, 2017, in Brooklyn, New York.
The selection panel also welcomed the first entrepreneurs from Endeavor Atlanta and Endeavor Tunisia into the Endeavor network, as well as the network’s first ever joint office company — Cognira, which has drawn support from both Endeavor Atlanta and Endeavor Tunisia.
Candidates pitched their companies in small interviews with panelists on Day 2 of the ISP at Citi Field. Photography by Hannah Cohen.
Endeavor now supports 1,538 entrepreneurs leading 962 companies in 30 growth markets around the world. Panelists at the event included top business leaders and investors who were drawn from Endeavor’s extensive network of board members, mentors, and supporters.
The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify innovative and driven entrepreneurs who are committed to advancing an ecosystem of entrepreneurship.
“The amazing entrepreneurs and high-impact businesses we saw convene this week in Brooklyn demonstrate all of the entrepreneurial potential still waiting to be uncovered around the world,” said Endeavor Co-Founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “We’re particularly thrilled to welcome entrepreneurs from some of our newest offices: Atlanta, Kenya and Tunisia!”
In New York, panelists from around the world interviewed entrepreneur candidates about their businesses, evaluating them on their potential for high-impact growth, and then deliberated on which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Once selected, Endeavor Entrepreneurs gain access to comprehensive customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs.
Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of creating hundreds of thousands of jobs, generating billions of dollars in revenues, and building sustainable growth models in their home countries.
Endeavor will host the year’s upcoming ISPs in Sofia, Bulgaria (October 23-25), and Miami (December 11-13). Learn more about the companies and entrepreneurs selected below.
