Endeavor

Enabling high-impact entrepreneurs for a more prosperous future for all

Endeavor is a mission-driven, global organization present in 37 markets leading the high-impact entrepreneurship movement. Its ultimate aim is a more equitable and prosperous future for everyone.

Endeavor, launched in 1997, was founded on the belief that job creation, innovation, and overall prosperity flourish where there is robust support for high-impact entrepreneurs, and Endeavor Miami launched in September 2013 with the support of Knight Foundation.

Endeavor Miami’s active local board of business leaders believe high-impact entrepreneurship can transform the local economy. We define high-impact entrepreneurs as those with the biggest ideas; the greatest potential to achieve meaningful scale; and the ability to inspire, mentor, and reinvest in the next generation.

For a carefully curated group of these entrepreneurs (“Endeavor Entrepreneurs”), Endeavor offers a best-in-class seal of approval, an unrivaled personal and professional network, frictionless co-investment capital, and peer-to-peer idea exchange in a truly global setting.

Endeavor also serves as a global thought leader, demonstrating why high-impact entrepreneurship matters and how important innovations can come from anywhere in the world. Successful high-impact entrepreneurs generate a multiplier effect: Young people everywhere, regardless of birthplace or background, hear their stories and begin to believe that they too can dream big, scale-up, and pay their success forward. Endeavor’s ultimate aim is a more equitable and prosperous future for everyone.

Our Model

Endeavor’s model is designed to search for, select, and scale-up entrepreneurs with the greatest potential for large-scale success, then spread their stories and resources to sustain lasting economic and social transformation in their home markets and beyond.

SEARCH: Endeavor’s 500+ team members and worldwide network painstakingly probe all our markets to identify qualified entrepreneurs for Endeavor’s selection process.

SELECT: Endeavor views its selection process as a service, where transformational conversations with preeminent business leaders push candidates to reflect and answer tough questions about their business models, team strength, and future growth plans. Our selection process begins in each local market and culminates in our world-renowned International Selection Panels (ISPs)—dynamic, invitation-only events held throughout the year in different cities around the world.

SCALE-UP: Endeavor delivers demand-driven services locally, regionally, and globally; we further customize these to turbocharge our entrepreneurs’ individual scale-up journeys.

SPREAD: We achieve broader ecosystem impact by sharing the aspirational stories, innovation strategies, and disruptive techniques of Endeavor Entrepreneurs.

SUSTAIN: Endeavor Entrepreneurs use our platform to give back and ensure that future generations have access to opportunities for self-fulfillment and community advancement.
