Scale-Up Programmes

Endeavor Programme

Established in 1997, Endeavor’s mission is to lead the global movement to catalyse long-term economic growth by selecting, mentoring, and accelerating the best high-impact entrepreneurs around the world.

Endeavor helps entrepreneurs overcome barriers to growth by providing the key ingredients to success: mentorship; networks; strategic advice; talent; skills; access to smart capital; and inspiration. Endeavor has its global HQ in New York City, with hubs in San Francisco, Dubai and Singapore. As of June 2014, it has 20 affiliates in countries that include Chile, Jordan and South Africa. Endeavor recently added an affiliate in Miami, the first time it has extended its model to a non-developing world region.

Having screened over 37,000 candidates over a 25 year period, Endeavor currently serves more than 900 “high-impact entrepreneurs” representing more than 580 companies. They have created 225,000 high-quality jobs, and generated $6bn in revenues.

This programme is associated with Recommendation 4 of the Scale-Up Report.
