Is there a deadline to apply?

No.  We are constantly evaluating new candidates. Contact us when you are ready! Endeavor's selection process is driven by the entrepreneur's schedule and by the dates of the local and international panels.

Entrepreneur: Can the entrepreneur(s) inspire future generations and be an ecosystem builder? Are these entrepreneurs willing to listen, learn and grow from mentor feedback? 

Business: Does the company have significant growth potential with a proven business model? Can this business 10x from where it is today? 

Timing: Is the company hitting an inflection point and poised for breakout growth that could be accelerated with Endeavor's support?

What does Endeavor look for?

No. Endeavor looks for companies that have found product/market fit and are growing quickly. Market traction is evaluated during the selection process.

Is there a revenue minimum to qualify for selection?

With 336 entrepreneurs selected in 2016 and 2017 across all industries and geographies, the honest answer is there is no typical Endeavor company! Here are Endeavor company statistics for companies that were selected in 2016 and 2017. The median company has:

Annual revenue of $2.8M, 65 employees, $3.4M in capital raised, and is 5 years old

What does a typical Endeavor company look like?

It can take anywhere between 6 and 12 months to get selected due to coordinating schedules and timing of selection panels. From an effort perspective, it normally requires 5-6 days from the entrepreneur, including the 3-day international selection panel. Selection can be accelerated in unique cases. 

How long does the selection process take?

Endeavor Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that is supported by donations from several sources; board members, selected entrepreneurs, corporate sponsors, and returns from our co-investment fund, Endeavor Catalyst. As such, we take no equity when selected and ask for a small donation to support the office and help us service more entrepreneurs. Our mission is to select entrepreneurs who want to create a legacy by building lasting enterprises in the metro-Atlanta ecosystem.
