“Where is the next Silicon Valley?” That was the question on Reid Hoffman’s mind when he sat down with Endeavor Co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg on his new hit podcast Masters of Scale, a show devoted to exploring and testing different ideas about how companies grow rapidly from “zero to gazillion.”
When Linda and co-founder Peter Kellner launched Endeavor 20 years ago with the vision of growing thriving entrepreneurship ecosystems around the world led by high-impact founders, there wasn’t a word for “entrepreneur” in Spanish. Today, Endeavor has supported 1,500 entrepreneurs, whose companies have created over 650,000 jobs and generated $10 billion in revenues in 2016.
In her conversation with Reid, Linda tells the story of Endeavor’s beginnings — from big ideas to moments of doubt — and talks through her vision for the essential building blocks needed to create “Silicon Valleys” around the world.
