Over the course of three days, entrepreneurs from all over the globe networked with panelists, outlined their business models and underwent intense hour-long interview sessions in hopes of becoming part of the Endeavor community.
Entrepreneurs from 14 Latin American companies were in the running this time around as well as others from Greece, South Africa, Indonesia and Turkey. At the end of the ISP, Endeavor revealed the identities of the 17 entrepreneurs from 11 companies that made the cut. Endeavor now supports 801 high-impact entrepreneurs from 500 companies throughout the world.
“It’s exciting to have so many new companies join the Endeavor community,” said Endeavor Co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “And it’s very special to have an ISP held in the birthplace of Endeavor, where some of our greatest entrepreneurs have come from!”
Endeavor will host three additional International Selection Panels this year, one in Johannesburg in August, another in Palo Alto, California in October, and a third in Dubai in December.
