Endeavor selected 26 high-impact entrepreneurs leading 18 companies from 13 countries at the 83rd International Selection Panel (ISP) in Athens, held October 22-24, and hosted by Endeavor Greece. Endeavor now supports 1,768 entrepreneurs leading 1,106 companies in 33 markets around the world. At the ISP, Endeavor also welcomed the first two entrepreneurs supported by Endeavor Nigeria into the network, leading companies Cars45 and BitPesa (learn more below).
The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify innovative and driven entrepreneurs who are committed to advancing an ecosystem of entrepreneurship.
“Endeavor is all about identifying and supporting those select entrepreneurs who build and scale lasting businesses, create jobs, and mentor and inspire others. From the dedication of network members who lend their time and expertise to serve as panelists, to entrepreneurs who passionately pitch their companies, ISPs are the heart of that process,” said Endeavor CEO Linda Rottenberg. “We’re thrilled to count a new, diverse group of high-impact entrepreneurs among Endeavor’s growing worldwide network — and particularly excited to welcome our first Endeavor Entrepreneurs from Endeavor Nigeria!”
