Endeavor Miami has announced the launch of their ScaleUp Program, a cohort-based five-month program for companies with a market-tested business model seeking to scale their businesses faster. The program is a staple of other Endeavor offices around the world and looks to support leading early-stage companies with strong impact potential in the South Florida ecosystem.
Endeavor Miami’s ScaleUp Program will be focused on the four pillars of services that Endeavor offers:
“We are very much looking forward to supporting the growth of this amazing group of companies. The launch of this program is a big milestone for Endeavor Miami and we’re proud to have such a strong first cohort participating,” said Juan Pablo D’Alessandro, Entrepreneur Selection and Growth Manager at Endeavor Miami.
The program is supported thanks to Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builders Award given to Endeavor Miami to support its mission to select, mentor and accelerate the scale of South Florida’s high-impact entrepreneurs. “It is thanks to partners like Bank of America that we’re able to continue driving our mission to catalyze economic growth locally and offer access to new programs, such as ScaleUp, to support even more entrepreneurs that will have a tangible impact on our community,” added Laura Maydón, Endeavor Miami’s Managing Director.
While Endeavor’s ScaleUp Program is offered in other Endeavor affiliates around the world, each affiliate designs the content based on the needs of their local communities. The program is designed to support the growth of companies that are still early for the Endeavor process but already have very strong indicators of scalability. “A key differentiator of the Miami program is the participation of our own Endeavor Entrepreneurs as speakers to share their stories and experiences,” mentioned Andrea Torres, Endeavor Miami’s Marketing & Partnerships Manager. “Their participation is a great example of Endeavor’s founder centric and pay-it-forward mentality.”
Aligned with Endeavor’s industry agnostic values, Cohort One is comprised of nine companies representing a variety of industries.
The companies selected to participate in the program are:
The ScaleUp Program is powered by Venture Hive’s Flitepath platform. Through the Flitepath platform, ScaleUp participants will have access to 24/7 education content tailored to industry vertical, mentorship and in-network resources, as well as company and product-level metrics for reporting and transparency and a document repository for storing sensitive information. Additionally, Endeavor partnered with Ninety.Us who ran diagnostics on the selected companies to identify challenge areas and best mentor profiles to match the companies’ needs.
Endeavor Miami is grateful to the support of Building.co who is the ScaleUp Program’s official venue partner. The program will launch on May 22nd with a workshop focused on growth led by our trusted partners at EY.
