Endeavor Uruguay recently published a map of Endeavor’s Multiplier Effect in the country, highlighting the local entrepreneurship ecosystem and the contributions of Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Published as part of Uruguay’s 2013 Impact Report, the map focuses on the impact of Endeavor Entrepreneur Gabriel Colla, founder of IT services firm Infocorp, and the employees, investments, and ventures he has inspired throughout Uruguay. Endeavor has also mapped the Multiplier Effect in affiliate countries including Argentina, Colombia, Turkey, and Chile.
Top Uruguayan newspaper El Pais interviewed Gabriel as a result of the map, spotlighting his work as an Endeavor Entrepreneur and mentor. His Multiplier Effect – the companies, entrepreneurs, partners and employees he and Infocorp have influenced over the years – reaches over 30 of the region’s top tech and startup ventures, with many outside of the Endeavor network. In the article, Gabriel discusses the mutually beneficial relationships between mentors and entrepreneurs that encourage collaboration, knowledge-sharing and community building in ecosystems that need it the most.
