Spread & Develop

Endeavor’s impact is exemplified by showcasing Endeavor Entrepreneurs as role models who influence education and policy reform, spur local investment, and inspire others to take risks. In each country and city where Endeavor operates, we highlight our entrepreneurs as role models, helping them to transform social norms around entrepreneurship and to inspire future generations to innovate, take risks, and “think big” – the multiplier effect.
