Selection Process

Endeavor selects and supports extraordinary emerging-market entrepreneurs who have the potential to transform industries, communities, and even countries. Endeavor screens thousands of entrepreneurs each year and selects those with exceptional and high-impact potential. We select individuals of all ages, ethnicity and educational background, delivering a meritocratic message to the developing world: through hard work, creativity and values-driven leadership, individuals living anywhere, from any background, can turn an entrepreneurial idea into a world-class venture.

Through a rigorous, multi-step selection process (3-18 months), candidates pass a series of local and regional interviews before presenting to panelists from our global business network at International Selection Panels held six to eight times each year.
