What do we look for?

ENTREPRENEUR

You are an ambitious entrepreneur who aspires to take your business to the next level and would like to give back to our entrepreneurial ecosystem.

BUSINESS MODEL

Endeavor looks for entrepreneurs building businesses with unique, scalable, innovative, and potentially disruptive business models. We select companies with a strong value proposition that have the potential to be category leaders globally.

OPERATIONS

The founder and the company are based in Florida, contributing to the growth of our local economy.

STAGE OF GROWTH

Endeavor selects “scale ups” who are thinking how they can reach true scale for their already market-validated solution and are at an inflection point in their accelerated growth journey. An ideal candidate has been growing exponentially over the past 2-3 years and generates substantial revenue which serves as proof of strong market demand and validates their potential for scalability.

Endeavor does not work with consulting firms, marketing agencies, event planning agencies, financial firms and other service-based companies.

Endeavor ScaleUp Cost

Endeavor ScaleUp participation requires a tax-deductible financial contribution to Endeavor Miami of $1,600/month for the 4 months of the initiative. Each additional participating co-founder will incur an additional $200/month.
