This month, Endeavor traveled all the way to Dubai for its latest International Selection Panel. There, it selected a new group of 27 high-impact entrepreneurs from 20 companies around the globe, meaning it now supports 871 entrepreneurs from 558 companies and 19 countries.
Representatives from three new Endeavor affiliates – Miami, Morocco and the UAE – made their debuts in the process at this 51st ISP. Remember that Endeavor Miami was announced less than a year ago.
“I’m thrilled about all the new Endeavor Entrepreneurs selected but particularly want to congratulate our first-ever entrepreneurs chosen from Miami, Morocco and the UAE,” commented Endeavor co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg in the selection announcement. “This panel proved once again that great high-impact entrepreneurs can be found anywhere in the world. Endeavor can provide the right mentors, networks and access to smart capital to help these businesses reach their full potential.”
Despite the distance, a handful of Latin American companies made the trip to Dubai to take part in the 51st Endeavor ISP. Here’s who from the region made the cut – and a look at Miami’s first Endeavor entrepreneurs, too. It’s a pretty varied group.
