Miami-Based Entrepreneur, Carlos Ramirez, Chosen to Join Endeavor at the 68th International Selection Panel
MIAMI (December 9, 2016) – Endeavor Miami announced today that another local company will be added to its growing portfolio of Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Powerful Yogurt is now the 16th Endeavor Miami company, after being selected at Endeavor Global’s 68th International Selection Panel (ISP) in Palo Alto from Dec. 7-9th.
Powerful Yogurt has a full lineup of high protein, gluten-free products, all made with all natural ingredients. Although it has since expanded its focus, Powerful Yogurt was the first company to market dairy products to the needs of active men. Based in Miami, the company’s products are sold in grocery and specialty stores across the U.S., Ireland, the United Kingdom and the Middle East.
“Powerful Yogurt is in an exciting critical growth stage, and partnering with Endeavor helps us with the speed and strategy of our expansion,” said Carlos Ramirez, Founder and CEO of Powerful Yogurt. “It is an honor for me to join Endeavor’s global network to help make my aggressive goals for the company a reality.”
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 global business executives, who interviewed Powerful Yogurt, giving the founder targeted feedback. At this ISP, Sean Wolfington, Endeavor Miami Board Member, participated as a panelist, interviewing non-Miami companies from various parts of the world.
“Welcoming another Miami-based company into the Endeavor network is exciting for our Endeavor Miami office,” said Laura Maydón, Managing Director of Endeavor Miami. “It’s clear that the South Florida entrepreneurial ecosystem is thriving, and we’re looking forward to working hand-in-hand with Powerful Yogurt to help them accelerate their growth.”
Endeavor Entrepreneurs receive services that include mentorship and access to capital, global markets and talent. Having launched its operation in September 2013 with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Endeavor Miami possesses an active local board of business leaders that believe high-impact entrepreneurship can transform Miami.
“Powerful Yogurt is a great example of the strength of Miami’s entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Matt Haggman, Knight Foundation Program Director for Miami and Endeavor Miami Board Member. “We look forward to watching their success as they continue to grow, create jobs and give back to the South Florida entrepreneurial community.”
