Endeavor Miami, the first U.S. affiliate of Endeavor, a global nonprofit that promotes high-impact entrepreneurship, is celebrating its first anniversary. Endeavor’s mission is as follows:
“Endeavor is leading the global movement to catalyze long-term economic growth by selecting, mentoring and accelerating the best high-impact entrepreneurs around the world.”
A year ago, Endeavor Miami brought this mission to life in Miami, and has played a big part in developing an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Miami. Endeavor’s opening in Miami was spearheaded by Endeavor co-founder Peter Kellner and Matt Haggman, program director of the Knight Foundation of Miami. As Laura I. Maydón, managing director of Endeavor Miami says, Endeavor Miami seeks to “search and select high-impact entrepreneurs because they are an essential path to economic development and job creation.”
Since its launch, Endeavor Miami has seven high-impact entrepreneurs and four diverse companies on board. Endeavor Miami is supporting them with a network of mentors and other services like access to capital, markets, and talent. The goal is to prepare at least four more companies in the next few months for selection by the end of the year.
Happy Birthday to Endeavor Miami!
