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 January 2007, Endeavor Entrepreneurs throughout Latin America, South Africa and Turkey have created 60,000 new jobs and generated over $1.5 billion in revenues. Endeavor plans to launch operations in India later in 2007 and expand its award-winning model throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East. For more information, visit www.endeavor.org.
