MIAMI (Feb 11, 2019) – Endeavor Miami announced today that Plantation-based The Fastmind’s founders were selected as Endeavor Entrepreneurs at Endeavor’s 85th International Selection Panel (ISP). The ISP was held in San Francisco from February 6-8, the culmination of a rigorous selection process.
Founded by Jorge and Eddy Prado in 2017, The Fastmind’ technology enables brands to share a single ad with all the links to the same e-commerce product or digital content for sale on different platforms, at the same time. Today, digital content can only be shared within the platforms that house it, but The Fastmind’s technology enables brands to seamlessly share content and products to users across all platforms at once. This unique technology helps users flexibly access content and e-commerce products via their service of choice.
“We’re thrilled to have been selected and are excited to interact with other Endeavor Entrepreneurs and mentors and really take full advantage of Endeavor’s impressive network, particularly as we seek to really scale our growth,” said Jorge Prado, CEO of The Fastmind.
The Fastmind will begin receiving services to further accelerate their scale, including mentorship and access to capital, global markets, and talent.
“The selection of The Fastmind into the network, showcases the strength and diversity of South Florida’s ecosystem,” said Laura Maydón, managing director of Endeavor Miami. “They are not only disrupting the digital advertising landscape but leading the way in an industry vertical which is strong in South Florida. We look forward to supporting their growth in the years to come.”
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 world-class business leaders, who interviewed founders, giving them targeted feedback.
Endeavor Miami launched in September 2013 with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as the first U.S. affiliate of Endeavor Global. Endeavor Miami’s entrepreneurs generated close to $200 million in revenues and 2,000 jobs in South Florida in 2018. With the addition of its newest companies, the affiliate currently supports 23 companies and 43 entrepreneurs.
