NETWORK BIG NEWS PHOTO: FLICKR USER DASPADER ENDEAVOR OPENS FIRST U.S. affiliate in miami Endeavor launched its first-ever U.S. affiliate in Miami in August 2013. A city of immigrants, with close ties to Latin America, Miami has a promising basis for entrepreneurship but suffers from high unemployment (roughly 2% higher than the national average) and an exodus of talent to entrepreneurial hotbeds like Silicon Valley and New York. The Endeavor Miami Board of Directors, with strong support from the Knight Foundation, believes that identifying and supporting a small group of high-impact entrepreneurs and helping them to scale their businesses will have an outsized impact on Miami's future economic development. Endeavor is energized by the potential of Miami as a U.S. affiliate and hopes that Miami will be the first of many U.S. cities to benefit from its model. "Since 1997, Endeavor has been very successful in helping entrepreneurs from emerging markets grow their businesses. Today, with the launch of Endeavor Miami, we look forward to bringing the lessons we've learned back to the U.S." Peter Kellner Founder & Managing Partner Richmond Global LLC co-founder, endeavor endeavor miami, jordan, and global board member
