ScaleUp is a four-month growth program offering guidance on scale through Endeavor’s network and robust framework of mentorships, group discussions and more
MIAMI, FL –August 31, 2022 – Endeavor Miami, an affiliate of the global Endeavor organization supporting entrepreneurship, announces nine participating entrepreneurs for the Fall Cohort of its ScaleUp Program, an innovative four-month growth program designed to support startups with high-growth potential in the Florida ecosystem in creating a path to scale.
Entrepreneurs were selected based on many factors that include being based in Florida, having an annual revenue between $800K – $2.5M, two or more full-time employees and product-market fit. Additionally, each company was carefully vetted based on its ability to scale while the founder was assessed on entrepreneurial grit, the ability to dream big and the desire to pay it forward to the next generation of entrepreneurs.
“Our Programs team has identified nine companies with high-growth and scalability potential, led by founders who are passionate about what they are building and are leaders in their respective industries,” said Claudia Duran, Managing Director of Endeavor Miami. “We choose entrepreneurs who not only fit the selection criteria, but also the overall mission of Endeavor: individuals who can transform economies with the companies they are building if they can dream big enough.”
The 2022 Fall Cohort includes companies that are disruptors in real estate, immigration, cryptocurrency, linguistics, human resources and drone operation and orchestration. Through the Endeavor ScaleUp program these companies will enhance the tech ecosystem and gain the ability to impact their communities by successfully creating job growth and bringing a valuable market-ready product to consumers.
“The tech landscape in South Florida has grown tremendously and is incredibly competitive. The companies we selected for our ScaleUp Program Fall Cohort will be the next class of high-growth entrepreneurs to make a difference in our community,” said Duran.
