Boatsetter, Entic and Mediconecta exemplify the high-impact traits that we select in our Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
MIAMI (Dec. 14, 2017) – Endeavor Miami announced today that three South Florida companies’ co-founders were selected as Endeavor Entrepreneurs at Endeavor’s 76th International Selection Panel (ISP). The ISP was held in Miami from Dec. 11-13, the culmination of a rigorous local selection process.
“Boatsetter, Entic and Mediconecta exemplify the high-impact traits that we select in our Endeavor Entrepreneurs, and it is a privilege to welcome their three technology companies into the Endeavor Miami portfolio,” said Laura Maydón, managing director of Endeavor Miami. “In addition, this week we were proud to host world-class business leaders and candidate entrepreneurs during Endeavor’s 76 International Selection Panel and showcase our local burgeoning entrepreneurial ecosystem to the global network.”
The selected companies are all based in South Florida, and will begin receiving services that include mentorship and access to capital, global markets and talent.
The Miami ISP took place across two-and-a-half days in which more than 50 entrepreneurs from 18 countries in the Endeavor network convened for interviews, private deliberations and networking.
“Endeavor was founded 20 years ago with a belief in the power of high-impact entrepreneurs to change lives and transform entire cities and countries,” said Endeavor Co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “At each selection panel we hold, I’m reminded of just how true that is — and just how far that belief has spread across the world. The passion that entrepreneurs, panelists and staff brought to our final ISP of our 20th Anniversary year in Miami is a testament to the potential of this movement.”
Endeavor’s ISP is the culmination of a rigorous selection process where panels composed of top global business leaders, entrepreneurs and investors interview candidates about their business model, leadership potential and timing. In order for an entrepreneur to be selected, they must receive a unanimous vote from the entire panel. Each panel consisted of sets of six world-class business leaders, who interviewed founders, giving them targeted feedback. South Florida was well represented at the event with three Endeavor Miami Board Members and five mentors who interviewed candidates to select this class of Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
Endeavor Miami launched in September 2013 with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as the first U.S. affiliate of Endeavor Global. Endeavor Miami’s entrepreneurs generated close to $130 million in revenues and 1,600 jobs in South Florida in 2017. With the addition of its newest companies, the affiliate currently supports 19 companies and 32 entrepreneurs.
Endeavor thanks Visa and Citi Private Bank for their generous support of the event.
