Endeavor Global Board Member Arif Naqvi Honored by Peace Organization

Arif Naqvi, Endeavor Global Board Member and Founder of The Abraaj Group, a leading private equity firm that invests in growth markets throughout Asia, Middle East, Africa, Turkey, Central Asia, and Latin America, was named the 2013 Oslo Business for Peace Honoree. The Oslo Business for Peace Award is the highest form of recognition given to individual business leaders for fostering peace and stability through creating shared value between business and society.

Naqvi’s work in promoting responsible business practices by looking at the stakeholder, rather than exclusively the shareholder, is pioneering in the private equity industry, and The Abraaj Group devotes the time of its employees and resources to mentoring social, cultural and economic entrepreneurs. Abraaj and its employees have developed an important partnership with Endeavor over the past three years supporting dozens of entrepreneurs as well as Endeavor’s affiliate expansion throughout MENA and Southeast Asia.
