Annual Endeavor Entrepreneurs Summit
The Endeavor Entrepreneurs’ Summit is a dynamic week-long conference hosted every two years by Endeavor Global that provides the worldwide Endeavor community with a platform to network, discuss common challenges and opportunities, and inspire each other to continue to think big.
The June 2011 Summit was held in San Francisco, and had 450+ participants, including over 170 Endeavor Entrepreneurs. In addition to interactive workshops led by Silicon Valley’s premier high-growth experts, small Breakout Sessions and “Hot Topic” discussions, and one-one-one mentoring opportunities, the summit featured keynote speakers Reid Hoffman (Founder, LinkedIn; Partner, Greylock), Scott McNeally (Co-founder, Sun Microsystems), Marc Benioff (Founder, Chairman and CEO, Salesforce.com), Bing Gordon (Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers; Former CEO, Electronic Arts), and Josh Silverman (Entrepreneur in Residence, Greylock; Former CEO, Skype; Former CEO, evite.com).
Endeavor recognizes that High-Impact Entrepreneurs, particularly coming from economies where entrepreneurship is stigmatized, need motivation to dare to think and act BIG. Endeavor Immersion Tours enable Endeavor Entrepreneurs to meet a diverse group of top-flight entrepreneurs, academics and business executives, and gain valuable business advice and inspiration.
Immersion tours have taken Endeavor Entrepreneurs to such places as New York, Silicon Valley, Boston, India, Israel, and Austin, Texas. At the October 2010 Silicon Valley Tour, entrepreneurs met with executives at Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and eBay. December 2010’s Fashion and Design Spotlight in New York featured presentations, conversations, and panels with top fashion executives, as well as several “Behind the Seams” tours.
