What do unicorn Careem (UAE), fintech TeamApt (Nigeria), edtech Go1 (South Africa), consumer-tech Spotahome (Spain), health-tech Grinta (Egypt), and B2B e-commerce Chari (Morocco) all have in common? The magic of Endeavor.
And, what were 80+ high-growth entrepreneurs from 26+ markets doing in Dubai in March? Besides connecting our entrepreneurs to smart capital and like-minded innovators, a big part of Endeavor’s magic lies in our Endeavor Entrepreneur Retreats, where founders connect and exchange lessons for scale, inspiring their next phase of growth. So, after two virtual years of programming, these high-growth entrepreneurs had a lot to catch up on.
Endeavor hosted our first global in-person gathering in Dubai, the 2022 Endeavor Entrepreneur Retreat.
Who attended: Over 90 entrepreneurs, board members, and mentors came together from 26 different countries over the course of three days.
From a lively yacht party to deep-dive breakout sessions on business challenges, fireside chats with the founder of Careem and the UAE Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, a Land Rover adventure through sand dunes, intimate conversations over dinner in the desert, and a mesmerizing drone show, participants had the opportunity to share unforgettable experiences and get reinspired in their journeys as they connected with one another.
" I'm leaving more excited, more energized, and more optimistic about the future."
