Endeavor Insight Spotlights Scaleup Ecosystems in Bangladesh and Uganda

endeavor_insightAs part of a series of reports focused on scaleup ecosystems worldwide, Endeavor Insight has analyzed the impact of scaleup companies on the economies of two emerging markets: Bangladesh and Uganda. Entitled “The Critical 5 Percent” (Bangladesh) and “The Critical 6 Percent” (Uganda), the reports highlight job creation and economic growth driven by high-impact entrepreneurs in each country. Earlier reports in the series studied the economies in Colombia, Indonesia, Jordan, Mexico and Peru.

Scaleup companies, defined as companies more than three years old with a minimum of 20% average annual employment growth, are a critical component of economic and social development in many global economies, including Bangladesh and Uganda. The report found that these businesses represent just 5% and 6% of these countries’ total number of firms, but created 70% and 50% of net new jobs in each country, respectively. For economies like these in particular, where the labor forces are projected to grow in the millions by 2020, the demand for new jobs has never been higher. Both nations will need to create millions of new jobs in order to keep up with population growth within the next decade.

With the demand for employment opportunities continuing to climb, scaleup companies are critical to creating an environment for continued growth, addressing the challenge of unemployment by driving innovation, strengthening value chains, and paving the way for long-term expansion. As the largest job creators in these countries, scaleups need access to the types of services Endeavor works to provide, promoting the right mix of talent, funding and networks to accelerate high-impact entrepreneurship that can transform the region.

Endeavor Insight Releases “The Criticial 9 Percent” Report on Jordan’s Growing Scaleup Ecosystem

endeavor_insightEndeavor Insight‘s “The Critical 9 Percent” reportreleased with support from Omidyar Network, highlights the contributions of scaleup companies towards job creation and economic growth in the country of Jordan. This is part of a series of reports from Endeavor Insight that focus on scaleup ecosystems worldwide and their significance in transforming emerging market economies. Earlier reports in the series studied the economies in ColombiaIndonesiaMexico and  Peru.

Scaleup companies, defined as companies more than three years old with a minimum of 20% average annual employment growth, are becoming a critical component of economic and social development in Jordan. Utilizing World Bank data, the report found that these businesses represent just 9% of the country’s total number of firms but created 53% of net new jobs in the past three years. For a nation like Jordan in particular, where the workforce is projected to grow by more than 330,000 people by 2020, the demand for new jobs has never been higher. A reported 200,000 people in Jordan are currently unemployed, a rate that is especially high among 15 to 24 year olds.

With the demand for new jobs continuing to climb, scaleup companies are critical to creating an environment for continued growth, addressing the challenge of unemployment by driving innovation, strengthening value chains and paving the way for long-term expansion. As the largest job creators in the country, scaleups need access to the sort of services Endeavor works to provide, promoting the right mix of talent, funding and networks to accelerate high-impact entrepreneurship that can transform the Middle East.

Endeavor Launches Second U.S. Affiliate in Detroit, MI

medium_9178018018Endeavor Detroit Logo (color) web small Detroit, MI – February 9, 2015 – Endeavor is officially announcing the launch of its second U.S.-based affiliate in Detroit, MI. Endeavor Detroit has identified some of the region’s top business leaders and entrepreneurs to join its local board of directors. Antonio Lück has also been selected as Managing Director. As Endeavor’s second entry in the U.S. market following its 2013 launch in Miami, Endeavor Detroit will help usher in a new era of local growth and economic development driven by high-impact entrepreneurship.

The economic challenges faced by Detroit since the financial crisis of 2007-08 have made headlines across the world. With a population of about 700,000, the city has seen a sharp rise in unemployment coupled with economic decline and a dwindling talent pool. Following its landmark municipal bankruptcy filing in 2013, the city has been beleaguered by unemployment rates hovering around 14% – nearly double the national average. The region of Southeast Michigan as a whole has not fully recovered from the financial crisis either, with unemployment rates at nearly 1% above 2007 levels.

Endeavor Insight, the organization’s research team, found that Southeast Michigan suffers from a scaleup gap, with the number of high-growth firms (companies older than three years with at least 20% annual employment growth over the last three years) declining by 50% between 2007 and 2012. Scaleups, however, can be the key engines of sustainable job growth that the city needs. The average high-growth company employs eight times as many people as the average non-high-growth firm, and 35 times as many as the average startup. To return the area’s unemployment rate to 2007 levels, Southeast Michigan will need to fill the job gap by empowering entrepreneurs and ventures that have the potential to create the most high-quality employment opportunities. Learn more about Endeavor Insight’s findings on Detroit’s scaleup ecosystem by clicking here.

Now at a critical crossroads, Detroit is primed for the sort of high-impact entrepreneurship that Endeavor has successfully fostered all around the world. By providing access to a global network of industry leaders, investors and talent, Endeavor’s support can help the best entrepreneurs in the city turn their ventures into businesses that will move the local economy. Endeavor works to take the magic of networks like Silicon Valley and bring it to regions with great ideas and potential, but not necessarily the resources to help founders expand their visions. Once selected into the network, Endeavor Entrepreneurs are connected with strategic mentors and given access to an array of tools that can catapult them to success. Since its founding in 1997, Endeavor has selected and supported over a thousand entrepreneurs representing more than 650 companies in the 22 markets where it operates.

“Detroit right now is in an exciting period of reinvention and growth, driven by a rise in entrepreneurship,” said Board Chairman Cindy Pasky, Founder & CEO of Strategic Staffing Solutions. “Endeavor’s unparalleled global network will equip the city’s best entrepreneurs with the resources they need to aid with ushering in a new era for Detroit.”

“The entrepreneurial talent in Detroit and the broader region is impressive,” echoed Endeavor Co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg. “We’re excited to support these companies to scale, stay and multiply their impact by investing, mentoring and inspiring the next generation of local high-impact entrepreneurs.”

All Endeavor affiliates are guided by a local board of business leaders, each of whom believes that high-impact entrepreneurship can transform entire economies. The Endeavor Detroit founding board will be chaired by Cindy Pasky, Founder, President, & CEO of Strategic Staffing Solutions. She will be joined by Gerard M. Anderson, Chairman & CEO of DTE Energy; Dave Egner, Executive Director of the New Economy Initiative and President & CEO of the Hudson-Webber Foundation; Thomas Groos, Partner of City Light Capital; Nate Lowery, Co-founder & CEO of TM3 Systems; Raj Vattikuti, Founder of Altimetrik; and Steven A. White, Chairman & CEO of Detroit Renewable Energy. The launch of Endeavor Detroit was made possible by the commitment and passion of these local board members as well as the support of some of the region’s top institutions and foundations.

“The DeVos Family first met Endeavor a couple years ago and was impressed by a proven track record to catalyze entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world,” expressed Nate Lowery, Co-founder and CEO of TM3 Systems Inc, and Board Member of the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation and Endeavor Detroit. “While the family has traditionally focused much of its philanthropy in Grand Rapids, taking Michigan’s entrepreneurial ecosystem to the next level will require cooperation from both sides of the state. Our Foundation is thrilled to be a driving force behind Endeavor coming to Detroit and Michigan.”

“From grassroots to high-growth, the New Economy Initiative supports programs that enable entrepreneurs to start, innovate and scale their businesses in SE Michigan,” said David Egner, President of the New Economy Initiative and Board Member of Endeavor Detroit. “The team identified a gap that Endeavor’s model could fill to support entrepreneurs to scale.”

The board has selected Antonio Lück as Managing Director of the office, overseeing the successful launch of Endeavor Detroit. Mr. Lück was previously the Director of Business Acceleration, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Venture Capital at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, where he directed all of the state’s early stage financial programs and the portfolio management team. He will lead the day-to-day operations of the office in Detroit and will be involved in screening entrepreneur candidates for consideration.

Endeavor Insight Uncovers Scaleup Gap in Southeast Michigan

endeavor_insightCoinciding with the launch of Endeavor’s Detroit affiliate, Endeavor Insight has released a report focused on the important role scaleup firms play in growing Southeast Michigan’s economy. The report, Filling the Scaleup Gap: How high-growth companies solve unemployment in Southeast Michigan is the first of two Insight studies identifying the decline of fast-growing firms and assessing policies and programs to solve it. The report highlights several important trends affecting Southeast Michigan:

1. Southeast Michigan hasn’t recovered from the financial crisis: Southeast Michigan unemployment is nearly 1% above 2007 levels and lags unemployment rates in peer metropolitan areas (Cleveland, Pittsburgh, etc.) by nearly 2%.

2. Southeast Michigan suffers from a scaleup gap: The number of Southeast Michigan high-growth companies (companies older than three years with at least 20% annual employment growth over the last three years and at least 10 employees) has declined by 50% between 2007 and 2012. Despite adding 7,000 startups and 46,000 lower-growth companies–a 27% increase in the number of companies since 2007–the region continues to suffer from high unemployment.

3. Southeast Michigan scaleups are the engines of sustainable job-growth: The average high-growth company employs eight times as many people as the average lower-growth firm, and 35 times as many as the average startup. High-growth firms created nine jobs, on average, between 2007 and 2012, while lower-growth firms created two and startups just one. Scaleups are also more durable than other types of companies. Firms with at least one high-growth period between 1990 and 2012 survived twice as long as those that never experienced high growth.

Endeavor Detroit will help close this gap by searching out, selecting, and supporting scaleup companies throughout Southeast Michigan. It will close the scaleup gap, creating new high-quality jobs for a region that helped create some of the most enduring companies of the 20th century.

World Economic Forum Report on Entrepreneurial Ambition Features Insights from Endeavor Entrepreneurs

WEF

A report produced by the World Economic Forum, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor and Endeavor examines the concept of entrepreneurship in three dimensions: early-stage entrepreneurial activity, growth-oriented entrepreneurship and innovation-based entrepreneurship. The study aims to develop a useful framework for policymakers to understand and support the best entrepreneurs in every region. Case studies and interviews with Endeavor Entrepreneurs from Saudi Arabia to Brazil serves to support the assessment.

It is widely believed that entrepreneurial activity is a critical component to a prosperous society, considering how entrepreneurs create jobs, drive progress and contribute to economic growth. Consequently, many governments and their policymakers aim to increase the number of entrepreneurs in their countries and aid their development. But providing this support is no easy task, as entrepreneurs are not necessarily the same even within a country and often appear in different guises depending on the country in which they are located.

By drawing on two unique data sets – the Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index and Global Entrepreneurship Monitor’s assessment of entrepreneurial activity – the report takes a nuanced stance on the prevalence and types of entrepreneurs globally, and the environments in which they thrive. This look at entrepreneurship aims to provide a deeper understanding of early stage entrepreneurial activity by taking into account that not all entrepreneurs are the same. Specifically, the report highlights early-stage entrepreneurs that are innovative and ambitious about their growth expectations, arguably those with the highest impact on economies.

The report ultimately finds that, in general, early-stage entrepreneurial activity is higher in economies that are less competitive and lower in highly competitive economies. Conversely, the proportion of ambitious and innovative entrepreneurs is more frequently high in more competitive economies. In many highly competitive economies with low rates of business starts, entrepreneurial drive manifests itself through more formalized structures, which dispels any quick conclusions about the quality of entrepreneurial ecosystems based on entrepreneurship rates alone.

Endeavor Entrepreneurs that provided their insights for the report include Rafael Bottós of Welle Tecnologia Laser (Brazil), Maha Arayssi Rifai of Beesline (Lebanon), Daphne Loukas of Out There Media (Greece), Caio Bonatto of TecVerde (Brazil) and Lateefa Alwaalan of Yatooq (Saudi Arabia).

Harvard Business Review Features Endeavor Research on Tech Founders

hbr

The Harvard Business Review (HBR) featured research from Endeavor Insight that dispels some popular myths about tech entrepreneurs. Tech founders are often associated with prominent colleges, technical training and youth. Data from Endeavor, however, reveals that these beliefs are often the exceptions, not the rule.

Two of the most successful tech entrepreneurs in history – Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg – promote the stereotypes around tech founders. Both were college dropouts who studied computer science by day, programmed by night, and built large public companies without ever having worked at one. Anecdotes from popular media have only added to the cult of youth. Last year, articles in The New Republic and The New York Times explored the role that young entrepreneurs have played in shaping Silicon Valley.

Over the last year, Endeavor Insight began studying the New York City tech sector, one of the largest in the world, to understand just how closely these myths align with reality. Starting with publicly available data from Crunchbase, AngelList, and LinkedIn – and layered on top of interviews with nearly 700 local tech founders – the data found that none of these stereotypes hold up.

The Myth of the Tech Whiz Who Quits College to Start a Company

Endeavor Jordan Research Spotlights Amman’s High-Growth ICT Industry

endjorEndeavor Jordan has released new research that sheds light on how high-impact entrepreneurs contribute to job creation and long-term economic growth in Amman and all around the country. The research is key to educating stakeholders about the importance of supporting the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and scale-up businesses. Titled Multiplying Impact: Amman’s High-Growth ICT Industry, the report specifically examines entrepreneurs that have made substantial contributions to the communications and technology sector through mentorship, investment or inspiration.

The development of entrepreneurship ecosystems cannot be judged by the number of startups in the ecosystem, nor are startups the only answer for the Middle East’s pressing job crisis. Rather, the scale-up entrepreneurs that manage to overcome the initial start-up phase hurdles and reach the more challenging stages of their businesses are the ones with the most potential to create large amounts of jobs and transform economies.

The report shares stories of such high-impact entrepreneurs whose impact have reached beyond the success of their own businesses to contribute to the organic growth of a growing ICT sector in Jordan. These entrepreneurs have enabled next-generation entrepreneurs to succeed in growing and scaling their own companies and commercializing their products and services, thus employing more people and expanding the economy’s productive potential.

By following the specific patterns of mentorship, investment and serial entrepreneurship activities, these founders have helped produce localized ecosystems that are increasingly integrated with the thriving global technology sector. The development of the ICT ecosystem in Jordan is also demonstrated through what Endeavor refers to as the “Entrepreneurship Acceleration Cycle”. This pattern has been observed in many successful communities around the world and is comprised of four distinct steps:

Step 1: Ambition
Entrepreneurs seek to build large, scalable businesses in their local communities.
Step 2: Growth
Ambitious founders achieve significant growth at their companies.
Step 3: Commitment
Successful founders choose to stay in the local area and share their resources with the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Step 4: Reinvestment
Successful founders reinvest in other entrepreneurs and businesses.

The cycle of entrepreneurial Ambition, Growth, Commitment, and Reinvestment has helped accelerate the development of Jordan’s technology ecosystem, as well as establish companies that demonstrate the potential to be sustainable and thriving businesses.

“Endeavor is committed to gaining a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing high-growth companies and the local entrepreneurial landscape as a whole. The report aims to provide in-depth insights into the Jordan’s dynamic ICT sector, which we believe has great potential to actively contribute to job creation,”said Rasha Manna, Managing Director of Endeavor Jordan. “In line with our ongoing efforts to sustain local entrepreneurship, the report also highlights the patterns of mentorship and reinvestment, which help accelerate industry growth, while advising policy makers and business leaders on how to best support the cultivation of high-growth companies.”

Report on Scale-Up Entrepreneurship in the U.K. Examines Research from Endeavor

scaleupuk
endeavor_insight
A new report titled The Scale-Up Report on UK Economic Growth has identified the impact of scale-up companies on the country’s economy and highlighted the importance of supporting high-impact, high-growth firms. Authored by entrepreneurship influencer Sherry Coutu, the report utilizeEndeavor’s research and work to underscore the need for policies and programs that support businesses through the critical scale-up phase.  

The report defines scale-ups similar to the way that Endeavor Insight and other organizations like the OECD and Nesta do. According to its analysis, a scaleup is “an enterprise with average annualised growth in employees or turnover greater than 20 per cent per annum over a three year period, and with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the observation period.”

The report found that scaleups are quite rare. There are more than two million businesses in the U.K., but only 8,923 of these companies are scaleups. However, these businesses accounted for a huge share of the country’s job and wealth creation. A study cited in the report noted that the fastest-growing 6 percent of U.K. firms created over half of its new jobs. The analysis included in the scaleup report also estimates that if the U.K. can increase the number of scaleups in its economy, it will generate an additional 238,000 jobs and £38 billion in value within three years.

If scaleups are so critical, it is important to understand what they need in order to continue to grow. A survey of over 300 founders of scaleup firms in the U.K. revealed that attracting talent, securing customers, and attracting financing are the the most pressing issues faced by these fast-growing companies.

Accessing critical talent was the most important issue cited by scaleup founders in the U.K. For example, over 85 percent of the scaleup companies reported that they would grow faster if it were easier to develop their leaders, and 87 percent of scaleups said that they would be able to grow faster if university graduates had the skills needed to meet customer demand. Eighty percent of scaleup founders also reported that they could greatly benefit from accessing more talent from overseas.

Interestingly, according to additional data shared at the public release of the report accessing finance was primarily an issue for smaller, fast-growing firms. Larger fast-growing firms reported much greater access to funding.

The report concludes with a number of recommendations that the U.K. government can take to support the growth of scaleup firms. It focuses on six areas:

– Targeting, supporting, promoting and reporting on scale-up gap closure. This includes targeting, supporting, promoting and reporting on the number of scaleup companies and their performance.

– Accessing talent. As the report notes, “For leaders of scale-ups, the number one problem that prevents them from being able to accept customer orders is access to talent, namely a skilled supply of people who they can hire.”

– Developing scaleup leadership. Developing internal leaders and managers inside their companies was the second most important factor cited by scaleup founders as stopping them from growing their revenues.

– Increasing customer sales at home and abroad. According to the report, “Barriers exist that prevent companies creating new products and services for domestic markets, and selling successful products in other countries.”

– Financing scaleups. Analysis suggests that scaleup companies often turn to the US or Asia to raise financing.

– Accessing infrastructure. Entrepreneurs at scaleup businesses also reported that lack of access to infrastructure makes it more challenging to grow their companies in the U.K.

Endeavor Insight and the Partnership for New York City Release “The Power of Entrepreneur Networks” Study of Nearly 700 Industry Trailblazers

endeavor_insight

Endeavor, with support from The Partnership for New York City and Barclays, released a report titled, “The Power of Entrepreneur Networks: How New York City Became the Role Model for Other Urban Tech Hubs” which identifies how founders who reinvest their success into others have greatly accelerated New York City’s tech growth.

“Endeavor has produced the first comprehensive analysis of the entrepreneurial ecosystem that has built Silicon Alley into a global center of innovation,” stated Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City.

“As companies become more successful, their founders are more likely to mentor, angel invest and become serial entrepreneurs. Companies that are connected to a top-performing company are twice as likely to become top-performers themselves,” said Fernando Fabre, President of Endeavor. “It’s a worldwide pattern that is an important building block for entrepreneurship.”

Over the past year, Endeavor conducted nearly 700 interviews with NYC tech entrepreneurs, combing through combined data from AngelList, Crunchbase and LinkedIn, with the aim of identifying lessons that leaders in other cities could use to support the growth of their own tech sectors. The study indicates that within the City’s tech sector, between 2003 and 2013: more than 2,200 companies were founded; there were 336 IPOs and acquisitions; $14.2 billion in investments and $18.1 billion in startup exits.

Key takeaways:

– New York City is the best role model for other urban tech hubs. It is the second largest tech hub in the world by most measures and the fastest growing over the last decade.
– Data from over 2,500 companies show that top-performing tech entrepreneurs are more likely than their peers to start new companies, encourage their employees to do the same, mentor, angel invest and inspire other entrepreneurs.
– Data from New York City’s tech sector debunks several common startup myths. For instance, the average NYC tech founder is thirty one years old and is more likely to have studied a non-technical subject in college than a technical one.

Highlights:

– Between 2003 and 2013, the New York City tech sector has grown twice as fast in terms of dollars invested as Silicon Valley’s, with its companies raising more than $3.1 billion in funding in 2013.
– Between 2010 and 2013, the number of New York City tech employees grew by more than 26% annually. Based on 2013 tax rates and a $100,000 average salary, the City could add nearly $160 million annually in new tech employee income tax receipts by 2019 and over $500 million by 2024.
– Tech companies led by local entrepreneurs directly employ 53,000 people, over 1% of New York City’s workforce.
– Venture funding for tech companies in New York City increased by 240% from 2003 to 2013, and more than 85% of the sector’s current companies and 86% of its current jobs were created during this time.

The report has also received media coverage in outlets including The AtlanticAM New York, NY Business Journal, The Huffington Post and Crain’s. Read the full report at www.nyctechmap.com and below.

 

The Power of Scale-Ups: Harvard Business Review and the World Economic Forum Spotlight High-Impact Entrepreneurship

WEF HBR

Scale-up companies, defined by Endeavor Insight as companies more than three years old with a minimum of 20% average annual employment growth, have become a major force in transforming economies around the world. Bringing focus to the power of scale-ups, the Harvard Business Review recently featured an article co-authored by Endeavor President Fernando Fabre and Babson College professor Dan Isenberg emphasizing scale-ups, not start-ups, as the main drivers of economic change. The article takes a specific look at The Global Scale Up Declaration, an effort formed between top entrepreneurship influencers to offer a rallying point for the movement. Sign and share the Declaration at ScaleUpDeclaration.org and join the social conversation with #ScaleUpDeclaration.

In addition, a recent World Economic Forum report titled “The Bold Ones – High-Impact Entrepreneurs Who Transform Industries” takes an in-depth look at the power of high-impact entrepreneurs and their role in innovating industries worldwide. Drawing from surveys of entrepreneurs in EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year program as well as research from Endeavor, the report provides insight on how these entrepreneurs and their scale-up ventures accelerate access to new markets and become leading businesses that create high-value jobs.

In the HBR piece, Isenberg and Fabre emphasize that, despite the buzz around “startups”, the U.S. has experienced a decades long decline in entrepreneurship. Instead, more and more American companies are surviving and growing beyond 16 years. These growing businesses – known as “scale-ups” – represent the kind of long-term entrepreneurship that improves societies, jobs, quality of life, and innovation. Entrepreneurial scale-ups are companies – young or old – which are run and owned by growth-driven leaders, and which at any stage of their lives may launch a new growth trajectory. New startups are easier to count, but they alone don’t have the positive impact on economies that growing a company does. As a result, in advance of November’s Global Entrepreneurship Weekthe Declaration was developed in a coordinated effort to focus more of the entrepreneurship conversation on scale-ups and their positive impacts.

View the full HBR article by clicking here.

The WEF report found that the over 600 companies in the sample (1/10,000th of the total number of U.S. companies) have created over 160,000 jobs in just the last two years (nearly 1/20th of the total U.S. economy). These ventures have outperformed comparable financial indices by a substantial margin and have created significant wealth for owners, employees, and customers. In addition, the report features insights from Endeavor CEO and co-founder Linda Rottenberg, who is recognized as an early pioneer of the high-impact entrepreneurship movement.
