Endeavor breaks down barriers that prevent emerging-market entrepreneurs from reaching their high-impact potential. Hailed by NYT columnist Thomas Friedman as the "mentor capitalist" model, Endeavor identifies entrepreneurs leading high-growth innovative companies in emerging markets. These entrepreneurs are given world-class strategic advice, access to key networks and other tools that will catapult them to success. With Endeavor's guidance they become “high-impact” – expanding employment, generating wealth and inspiring others to innovate. Often overlooked, these local entrepreneurs are now jumpstarting private sector development in their countries.
As of 2007, Endeavor Entrepreneurs throughout Latin America, South Africa and Turkey have created over 86,000 new jobs and generated over $2.51 billion in revenues. For more information, visit www.endeavor.org or follow us on http://twitter.com/endeavor_global.
