It wasn’t easy. The leaders of Juris Technologies attended the 54th International Selection Panel in New York and were thoroughly grilled by our judges from Endeavor. Thanks to God and the judges, we made it, and were selected as High-Impact Entrepeneurs. Our judges were Sean Wolfington, Alex Tepper, Jean Michel Enriquez, Chris Zook, Youssri Helmy and Barbara Mariniello.
The Endeavor press release states:
Endeavor selected 31 high-impact entrepreneurs leading 21 companies in 15 countries at its 54th International Selection Panel.
Endeavor now supports 948 High-Impact Entrepreneurs from 606 companies across 20 countries. The entrepreneurs were chosen from among 29 candidate companies at a panel held from August 11-13th for the first time in New York City.
A number of pioneering entrepreneurs and groundbreaking companies are part of this new class, including Saudi Arabia’s Lateefa Alwaalan, the first female candidate from the country and founder of Arabic coffee producer Yatooq, and Argentina’s Emiliano Kargieman, founder of nano-satellite developer Satellogic. Endeavor Spain also welcomed its first entrepreneur, Ignasi Vilajosana of Worldsensing, into the network.
The International Selection Panel (ISP) is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process. At the ISP, top local and international business leaders interview candidate companies about their businesses and high-impact potential, and then vote on whether or not the candidates should become Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
“This was our largest panel ever and resulted in one of the most diverse classes of high-impact entrepreneurs selected by Endeavor,” said Endeavor co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “Not only are they innovating economies from Chile to Greece and Saudi Arabia to Indonesia, they are showing the world that excellent talent and big ideas can thrive anywhere with the right mix of support and mentorship.”
After their selection into the network, Endeavor provides the entrepreneurs with customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms. Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had an impressive track record of creating jobs, building sustainable growth models, and inspiring future generations of leaders in their home countries.
This ISP was supported by Barclays and EY, both global sponsors of Endeavor. Barclays welcomed the entire panel to their New York offices for orientations and for interview day on August 12th
