Endeavor selected 17 entrepreneurs leading nine companies at the 19th Virtual International Selection Panel (vISP) held September 20-23, 2021. Endeavor now supports 2,225 entrepreneurs leading 1,384 companies in nearly 40 markets around the world.

The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify high-impact entrepreneurs who demonstrate the potential to leverage Endeavor’s resources and mentorship to create large-scale wealth and jobs and are committed to reinvesting their time and money in their local entrepreneurship ecosystems to help others take off.
During the vISP panelists utilized Zoom breakout rooms to interview a small group of high-caliber entrepreneur candidates leading four companies about their businesses. In “deliberation rooms” — private Zoom meetings with only Endeavor staff and panelists — panelists evaluated the entrepreneurs on their potential for high-impact growth, discussed which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs, then voted unanimously to select the newest Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
