I spent time in Eastern Europe with entrepreneurs and realized how many additional barriers they had to be successful. When I met Linda and Peter they were so passionate about helping entrepreneurs globally I knew I had to get involved. I was lucky to be around the kitchen table when the plans for Endeavor were hatched on the back of a napkin over Chinese food. It’s been an amazing 20 year journey and so proud of what the organization has accomplished.
I’ve been lucky to be involved with many VC backed “homeruns” in my career but there is none that have given me more pleasure and satisfaction than the 20 year journey with Endeavor. I have made lifetime friendships and seen first hand that a small group of passionate people really can change the world.
I love entrepreneurship and believe it is the most powerful and empowering engine of reaching human potential on the planet yet invented. With Endeavor I have become part of a global community of my people, the ones who share a world view and passion for making a difference and upending the status quo while sharing the wealth and passing on the wisdom for the next generation.
