Endeavor opens office in Portugal
The entrepreneurs and investors community Endeavour has opened its first office in Portugal.
Endeavor is a leading global community of, by, and for High-Impact Entrepreneurs who “dream bigger, scale faster, and pay it forward”.
Nuno Sebastião (Feedzai) and Pedro Castro e Almeida (Santander) are among the founders of the local arm of this community which by September aims to have two or three Portuguese companies taking part in an international Selection Panel giving them access to over 2,000 entrepreneurs that includes names like Reid Hoffman (Linkedin) or José Maria Pallete (Telefonica) and manages the fund Endeavor Catalyst.
“We believe that the Portuguese entrepreneurial ecosystem has consolidated its footprint in recent years, and Endeavor’s network model can contribute towards accelerating its growth.
“As we build local capital, we link the main founders to a community of entrepreneurs and investors who can share their International experiences, thereby having a positive impact on the national ecosystem, leveraging relations between the two parties and the community”, said Joaquim Sérvulo Rodrigues, Chairman of Endeavor Portugal.
Driven by a belief that High-Impact Entrepreneurs transform economies, Endeavor is on a mission to build thriving entrepreneurial ecosystems in emerging and underserved markets around the world.
Endeavor creates a Multiplier Effect by inspiring high-growth founders to dream bigger, supporting and investing in them to scale faster, and providing a platform to pay it forward — thereby compounding their individual impact.
