Founded in 1997 by Linda Rottenberg and Peter Kellner, Endeavor is leading the global movement to catalyze long-term economic growth by selecting, mentoring, and accelerating the best high-impact entrepreneurs around the world. Endeavor helps entrepreneurs overcome barriers to growth by providing the key ingredients to success: mentorship, networks, strategic advice, talent, skills, access to smart capital, and inspiration. Guided by Endeavor, these entrepreneurs generate sustainable economic growth and jobs, become self-made role models, and help nurture a culture of entrepreneurship which spurs investment and encourages people to think big.
Endeavor has been hailed by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman as “the best anti-poverty program of all,” and has to date screened 40,000 entrepreneurs and selected 1,000 individuals leading 600+ high-impact companies. With support from Endeavor’s worldwide mentor network, these high-impact entrepreneurs have created over 400,000 jobs and generate $7 billion in revenues annually.
Headquartered in New York City, with satellite offices in San Francisco and Singapore, Endeavor currently operates in 20 markets: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Greece, Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Malaysia, Miami, Morocco, Peru, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, the UAE, and Uruguay. To meet the goal of operating in 25 countries by 2015, Endeavor continues to aggressively scope new opportunities.
