Madrid, Spain – May 31, 2016 – Endeavor selected 41 high-impact entrepreneurs representing 25 companies and 14 countries at its 64th International Selection Panel (ISP). In total, Endeavor has now supported 1,274 entrepreneurs leading 804 companies in 25 growth markets around the world. The most recent Endeavor Entrepreneurs were chosen at a panel held from May 25-27 in Madrid, Spain. Panelists at the event included top global business leaders and investors who were drawn from Endeavor’s extensive network of mentors and supporters.
The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous and extensive multi-step selection process. At the event, top local and international business leaders interview candidates about their businesses and high-impact potential, and then vote on whether or not candidates become Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Post-selection, Endeavor provides entrepreneurs with customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms. Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of creating hundreds of thousands of jobs, generating billions of dollars in revenues, and building sustainable growth models in their home countries.
“This ISP in Madrid represents the best of Endeavor and I would like to thank the board of Endeavor Spain for all of their support,” said Linda Rottenberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Endeavor. “We not only brought together some amazing members of the network, we selected companies that are truly transforming their industries and communities around the world.”
In 2016, Endeavor will host its remaining ISPs in Bali, Indonesia (July 27–29); Boston, MA (September 7–9); Medellin, Colombia (October 26–28) and Bay Area, CA (December 7–9).
