Two Bulgarian Entrepreneurs Selected at the 63rd International Selection Panel in Dubai

Dubai, UAE – March 4, 2016 – Endeavor selected 35 high-impact entrepreneurs representing 24 companies and 16 countries at its 63rd International Selection Panel (ISP). In total, Endeavor has now supported 1,233 entrepreneurs leading 779 companies in 25 emerging and growth markets around the world. The most recent Endeavor Entrepreneurs were chosen at a panel held from March 1-3 in Dubai, which marked the organization’s largest ISP to date outside of the U.S. Panelists at the event included top global business leaders and investors who were drawn from Endeavor’s extensive network of mentors and supporters.

The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous and extensive multi-step selection process. At the event, top local and international business leaders interview candidates about their businesses and high-impact potential, and then vote on whether or not candidates become Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Post-selection, Endeavor provides entrepreneurs with customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms. Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of creating hundreds of thousands of jobs, generating billions of dollars in revenues, and building sustainable growth models in their home countries.

“As our largest foreign ISP yet, this recent panel in Dubai demonstrates how fast and far we’ve grown,” said Linda Rottenberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Endeavor. “There’s nothing as encouraging as seeing so many entrepreneurs and business leaders from all over the world come together in support of high-impact entrepreneurship.”

This also marked Endeavor’s first paperless ISP – a special thanks goes to MacRentals for supplying iPads for our digital initiative.

In 2016, Endeavor will host its remaining ISPs in Madrid, Spain (May 25–27); Bali, Indonesia (July 27–29); Boston, MA (September 7–9); Medellin, Colombia (October 26–28) and Bay Area, CA (December 7–9).
