In conjunction with the ISP in Istanbul, Endeavor also hosted its first Middle East & Turkey Mentor Capital Summit, marking a rare gathering of top entrepreneurs and pioneering venture capitalists in the region. Twenty-four top investors from the Middle East, Europe, and the US joined the Summit to discuss the development of the region’s venture capital ecosystem, and to evaluate business pitches from four Endeavor Entrepreneurs graduating from the Mentor Capital Program.
Beyond providing entrepreneurs with exposure and feedback, the pitch forum succeeded in facilitating proper introductions to potential investors, several of whom expressed significant follow-up interest. The Summit closed with a private workshop for MCP graduates. The next Mentor Capital Summit will take place October 6-7 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
