I found out about Endeavor through my business partner at the time, who read about Endeavor at our lawyer’s office in Boston. Endeavor has had an enormous impact in my professional life: First, as an entrepreneur, by allowing me to have access to a network that never in my dreams I would have been able to reach. Then, as a mentor, providing me the chance to give back some of what I have learned over the years to new and fascinating members of Endeavor’s ecosystem. Lately, Endeavor continues to impact me through events where I have epiphanies hearing other successful entrepreneurs sharing their moments of truth.

Endeavor is definitely about growing — growing knowledge, in business and in contacts, and growing your business through that knowledge. Being part of the Endeavor network means being part of something greater than yourself and your company. It means being able to leverage experiences and skills that, otherwise, would not be available or attainable. And it has given a new meaning to scale — impacting the world in a positive way by promoting entrepreneurship and innovation.
