Our Entrepreneurs

High-impact entrepreneurs are committed not only to scaling their companies, but also to growing their local ecosystems. Historically, Endeavor Entrepreneurs typically grow their companies more than twice as fast, and create jobs more than five times as quickly as their peers. They are also four times more likely to inspire and invest in the next generation of founders.

“Talent may be equally distributed, but opportunity certainly isn’t.”

Entrepreneurs everywhere face obstacles in scaling their businesses, but in emerging markets like Nigeria, they face additional barriers including high costs of operation, poor infrastructure, limited talent pools and management capacity, fewer role models and mentors, and constrained access to smart capital. Over more than 20 years, Endeavor has developed and honed a multi-local model that delivers critical access to mentorship, talent, expertise, capital, and new markets for our entrepreneurs. Endeavor’s 500+ staff and 4,000+ Endeavor Network members support Endeavor Entrepreneurs in Nigeria and 42 other high-growth markets to successfully grow their companies and become important nodes for wealth and job creation in their local economies.
