The UAE news outlet The National recently profiled Endeavor’s work in the region, including the formation of the Endeavor UAE affiliate in 2013.
In the article, contributor Neil Parmar highlights the growing interest in scale-up entrepreneurship in the Middle East, evidenced by some of the region’s top business leaders and investors volunteering to join the governing board of Endeavor UAE. Given the success of the Endeavor model in Latin America, many saw an opportunity to expand the concept in the Middle East where the ecosystem of entrepreneurship is not only helping to bring stability and change, but also showcasing regional talent to the world.
The article also discusses the 51st Endeavor International Selection Panel which took place in Dubai in December 2013 and highlights Duplays and PropertyFinder, the first UAE entrepreneurs to be selected at the panel. Other Endeavor Entrepreneurs mentioned include Anghami from Lebanon, TalentS from Saudi Arabia, and Konut Kredisi and Pozitron from Turkey.
