My involvement with Endeavor started when I was looking for a new CSR initiative as part of our Global Sustainability Program in Provident. Helping entrepreneurial development became one of our strategic objectives, and explaining long term sustainability and stakeholder engagement to these successful new business generators was a key element for me. But very quickly I realized that my involvement was not just a corporate initiative; as a person, I also found myself fully identified with the strategic objectives of the Endeavor network and devoted personal time to making a bigger impact.
I’m still mentoring and participating in advisory boards today. Endeavor has opened my eyes to a big world of business opportunities that entrepreneurs are generating, and given me the opportunity to contribute to busness growth by sharing knowledge and providing input in many different ways and formats.
To me, being part of the Endeavor network means contributing to new generation of entrepreneurs in local projects, with a global impact that is sustainable, and provides economic development with social impact.
