ENDEAVOR


Endeavor selected 13 entrepreneurs leading six companies at the 25th Virtual International Selection Panel (vISP) held March 21-23, 2022.

The vISP was presented by General Atlantic, with additional support from AXA, Bain, Cooley, EY, HSBC, Silicon Valley Bank, and Zoom.

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: Amr Shady, Tribal Credit (Endeavor Entrepreneur; Endeavor Egypt Board Chair); David Wells, Experienced Operating Exec, Board Member, & Advisor; Giorgio Tinacci, Casavo (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Guibert Englebienne, Globant X and Globant Ventures (Endeavor Entrepreneur; Endeavor Argentina Board Chair); Jasen Ko, Laborem (Endeavor Philippines Board Chair); Joanna Rees, West (Endeavor Global Ambassador; Fmr. Endeavor Global Board Member); Lynne Laube, Cardlytics (Endeavor Atlanta Board Member); Nicolás Szekasy, Kaszek (Endeavor Entrepreneur; Endeavor Global Board Member); Oliver Rippel, Asia Partners; Parker Treacy, Cobli (Endeavor Entrepreneur); Shailesh Rao, Venture Highway, and BigSpring; Yinglan Tan, Insignia Venture Partners.

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.
