The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify high-impact entrepreneurs who demonstrate the potential to leverage Endeavor’s resources and mentorship to create large-scale wealth and jobs and are committed to reinvesting their time and money in their local entrepreneurship ecosystems to help others take off.

During the vISP, panelists interviewed a small group of high-caliber entrepreneur candidates about their businesses. Then, in “deliberation rooms,” panelists evaluated the entrepreneurs on their potential for high-impact growth, discussed which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs, and voted unanimously to select the newest Endeavor Entrepreneurs.

Panelists at the ISP included: Ahmed Karslı, Papara (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Alex Jaimes, Dataminr; Amjad Ahmad, 500 Global; Arvind Rajan, Cricket Health; Ayman Ismail, DMG (Endeavor Egypt Board Chair); Claire Lee, Investor; Diego Tartara, Globant; Drew McElroy, Transfix; Eric Pérez-Grovas, Wollef; Hassan Hamdan, Unifonic (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Hector Sepúlveda, Nazca (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Matt Tucker, OLO Online Ordering; Mauro Schnaidman, Quantum Leap International; Mostafa Kandil, Swvl (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Niko Bonatsos, General Catalyst; Rob Forman, Salesloft (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Steve Kessel, Amazon; Sunny Bates, Sunny Bates Associates.

As part of Endeavor’s network, the newly selected entrepreneurs will gain access to comprehensive, strategic, global support services, including introductions to local and international business mentors, investors, and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs.

Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of impact. Endeavor Entrepreneurs have created more than 3.9 million jobs, generate combined revenues of over $28B, and help build sustainable growth models in their home countries.
