Endeavor selected eight entrepreneurs leading five companies at its 41st virtual International Selection Panel (ISP) held November 15-17, 2023. The organization now supports 2,540 entrepreneurs from 1,558 companies in 42 markets around the world.
Each ISP is the culmination of a rigorous, multi-step selection process to identify high-impact entrepreneurs from all over the world. We seek founders with the greatest growth potential, as well as those who commit to reinvesting time and resources into their local entrepreneurial ecosystems to help build the next generation of entrepreneurs, sparking a Multiplier Effect. During the ISP, panelists interview entrepreneurs about their businesses and evaluate their potential for high-impact growth. The panelists then discuss the candidates and vote whether to select them to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
