What do companies get out of this?

  • X-Ray: Companies go through an assessment to identify key challenges to their scale and identify areas of opportunity to be addressed during the program.
  • Virtual Retreat: Entrepreneurs take part in a “retreat” to build trust, transparency and vulnerability amongst cohort participants, pushing the envelope of peer-to-peer learning, exchanges and mentoring.
  • Group Modules: Participants attend 5 half-day group sessions in which they are exposed to subject matter experts to deep dive, discuss and learn about best practices related to scaling up a company. Entrepreneurs also have the opportunity to exchange lessons and experiences through structured presentations, forum-like discussions and curated 1-1 conversations.
  • Individual Mentoring: Participants are assigned a mentor with whom they meet 3 times throughout the program to work through the business challenges identified in the X-Ray. Mentors hold entrepreneurs accountable for results as they navigate the problem-solving process that is individual mentoring.
  • Demo Day: To wrap up the program, entrepreneurs take part in a public Demo Day in which they pitch their companies to a panel of judges made up of Endeavor mentors, entrepreneurs, investors and/or community partners. The Demo Day is an excellent practice for entrepreneurs looking to fine tune their storytelling skills as well as an opportunity to present your brand to a segment of the Miami entrepreneurial community.
