My former boss, Gary Mueller was one of the founding members of Endeavor Global. When he introduced me to Linda Rottenberg, I was immediately taken by her electric energy and wanted to help her realize her vision to be a catalyst for entrepreneurship around the world. After working with her in New York, I was able to help get Endeavor Turkey off the ground and recruited my sister, Didem Altop to take the reins of this important mission.
Without Endeavor, I wouldn’t be where I am today. The network, the inspiration, the knowledge it shared has given me the courage and strength to not only believe in my dreams but to also realize them. It’s like family. I know they are always there for me when I need them.
I believe Endeavor has positively changed the discourse and narrative on what it means to be an entrepreneur.
