Endeavor’s Faces of Impact: Stories from the High-Impact Entrepreneurship Movement

Twenty years ago, we founded Endeavor as a new kind of organization. What began as a “business plan” sketched on the back of a napkin has, over the years, become a shared vision, cultivated and expanded by our board members, staff, mentors, partners and entrepreneurs around the globe.

Our network’s passion and commitment have created a movement and transformed Endeavor into something far bigger than we could have imagined. Today, Endeavor Entrepreneurs have created 700,000 jobs and, last year, generated $10 billion in revenues, across 60 cities in 30 growth markets.

An organization “of, by and for” entrepreneurs, Endeavor’s story is one of many voices. A few months ago, we asked our network to share theirs with us. Over 200 people answered from around the world.

For Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017, November 13 to 17, we’re pleased to present a selection of Endeavor’s #FacesOfImpact as a special series on Medium, highlighting a stories from five different Endeavor Entrepreneurs, each day of the week.

We’re looking forward to sharing more with you as we launch the official project website in the coming days. In the meantime, we hope you’ll share your Endeavor story with us too.
