Following the interviews, panelists carefully deliberate which candidates are to be selected in the next class of Endeavour Entrepreneurs.
“Over the years, even as Endeavor has evolved, our selection process has remained the same. The ISP is really where you can see the power of Endeavor’s global network in action, and the candid conversations and caliber of the entrepreneurs this week in Istanbul is a testament to that,” says Linda Rottenberg.
