Endeavor Entrepreneurs Star at Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur Conference

Endeavor Partner Ernst & Young hosted their annual World Entrepreneur Conference and World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards program in Monte Carlo June 5 – 7 and a number of Endeavor Entrepreneurs were highlighted during the event.   Three Endeavor Entrepreneurs were winners at the country level for this year’s WEOY competition:  Mario Hernandez of Marroquinera (Colombia): Martin Migoya from Globant (Argentina); Jorge Pacheco from Oxxean (Chile).  In addition, two Endeavor Entrepreneurs — Labib Shalak of Mobinets (Lebanon) and Karina von Baer, an Endeavor Entrepreneur for her original company Oliotop (Chile) — were invited to be part of event panels.  A new part of this year’s program were the Mentoring Great Minds business plan review sessions, where Endeavor Entrepreneurs Gustavo Travasso of MXT (Brazil) and Felipe Valdes of Tiaxa (Chile) met with a group of panelists from EY, former EY Entrepreneur of the Year Winners and Endeavor Board Chair Edgar Bronfman for highly interactive discussions about their business challenges.  Huge thanks to Maria Pinelli and her team from  Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Markets  for their help in highlighting Endeavor at this year’s conference. “It is great to see both companies take advantage of the synergies in their missions – kudos for that, ” said entrepreneur Valdes. “Nothing helps entrepreneurs more than a network of talented and committed people coming together.”
