Endeavor Miami’s ScaleUp Program is a four-month acceleration program designed to support leading early-stage companies with strong impact potential in the South Florida ecosystem to scale.
Scale-ups – companies at least three years old with a minimum of 20% CAGR – are important to the development of an economy because once they hit moderate scale or greater, they generate 80% of jobs in Miami. However, 99% of startups in Miami die before reaching 5 years of operation. Therefore, it’s crucial to bridge the gap between start-up to scale-up with the support that actually helps companies scale.
What differentiates us from other programs?
The Endeavor Miami ScaleUp Program leverages Endeavor’s over 20 years of knowledge and best-in-class services and tools used to support entrepreneurs around the world.
What do entrepreneurs gain from this?

Program participants also get to focus on a particular challenge area and identify potential solutions with the support of their chosen mentors. Finally, through curated and personal exchanges with fellow cohort members, founders get to create a new support system for their entrepreneurial journey.
