Unlike typical conferences that “generate more heat than light,” the Endeavor Entrepreneur Summit in San Francisco last week had real business impact, says Fast Company blogger Rob Salkowitz. The hundreds of Endeavor Entrepreneurs in attendance learned as much from each other as they did from the scores of successful global business executives and top-notch VCs who presented at the conference.

As the post highlights, Summit speakers shared the importance of having a controversial (but correct!) strategy and of thinking globally from the beginning to attract foreign investment. Workshop discussions tackled critical design, leadership, talent management, and innovation issues, among other topics.
Attendees also heard from some of Endeavor’s most successful Entrepreneurs, including Mercado Libre cofounders Hernan Kazah and Nicolas Szekasy and SySDSoft founder and CEO Khaled Ismail. According to Salkowitz, this not only validates Endeavor’s program and entrepreneur selection process, but it fulfills “the organization’s core mission of nurturing and promoting world-changing businesses in the parts of the world where change means the most.”
