MIAMI, FL – Oct. 9, 2019 – Endeavor Miami will recognize Cesar Conde, chairman of NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises with the Endeavor Miami Impact Award. He will be honored for his significant contributions to the media and entertainment industry that have impacted the prominence of the U.S. Hispanic community in the media landscape at a gala ceremony at the Faena Forum in South Beach on Oct. 26.
Endeavor Miami’s gala gathers more than 300 business leaders, entrepreneurs and investors to celebrate South Florida’s high-impact entrepreneurship movement. Miami is a city of rapid economic growth, and Endeavor Miami is committed to positively shaping its development. Endeavor Entrepreneurs are expected to generate more than $250 million in revenue and create around 3,000 jobs in 2019.
“The Endeavor Gala celebrates and recognizes pioneers who champion economic transformation by creating quality jobs and driving lasting impact for future business leaders,” said Claudia Durán, Endeavor Miami’s managing director. “Cesar Conde is an exemplary role model who not only embodies our high-impact values but also dedicates his life to shaping the portrayal of the U.S. Hispanic community in media, while simultaneously empowering their voices.”
Cesar’s career exemplifies the pursuit of high-impact leadership. Now one of the most influential figures in media, Cesar’s rise was marked by his vision of leveraging mass media’s potential to impact society, and specifically engaging and empowering Hispanic audiences with relevant content. He not only spearheaded Telemundo’s ratings dominance in the Hispanic media landscape, but also cemented its recently renovated Miami headquarters as a large, high-value enterprise, increasing the number of high-paying jobs in the city and expanding Miami’s economy.
The sixth Endeavor Miami Impact Award will honor Cesar’s tenacity, hard work and leadership in raising the standards of the competitive media landscape. Furthermore, he was an early backer of Endeavor’s expansion into the United States and a firm believer in Miami as the best place for the organization’s first U.S. affiliate. He recognized that a city comprised mostly of immigrants (like Miami) was full of talent and ripe for entrepreneurship, but needed an organization like Endeavor to strengthen its entrepreneurial ecosystem.
“At NBCUniversal and Telemundo we are driven by our commitment to serving our community,” said Conde. “That means using our resources to inspire conversation and foster leadership. I am honored to be the recipient of this year’s Endeavor’s Impact Award because I share Endeavor’s mission to push the boundaries of my industry while promoting innovation and economic growth for the city.”
In addition to Cesar’s recognition during the ceremony, Endeavor will present two Endeavor entrepreneurs with Entrepreneur of the Year awards. These will be announced the night of the ceremony.
Following the gala, there will be an after party at the Faena Theater. To register or receive further event details, please visit the gala’s website. Proceeds from the event directly support Endeavor Miami’s mission to select, mentor and accelerate high-impact entrepreneurs in South Florida.
