Stay up to date on Detroit entrepreneurs, events, research and more.
Endeavor’s unparalleled global network will equip the city’s best entrepreneurs with the resources they need to grow and continue putting Atlanta on the map as a hub for entrepreneurship.
As Endeavor’s fourth U.S. office, Endeavor Atlanta will leverage the region’s entrepreneurial spirit to drive job creation, wealth creation, sustained economic growth and a culture of paying it forward to future generations of founders.
Atlanta is home to a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem, with strong universities, headquarters of prominent large corporations, and a growing tech scene with innovative startup accelerators and incubators. Yet, while the rate of startup growth is rapidly rising, with an increase from 35% in 2015 to 44% in 2016,* the share of scaleups—those companies that have passed the start-up phase and who demonstrate the potential for rapid expansion—in the ecosystem has largely remained static. Endeavor’s support model will target these companies poised to scale, helping build up an extensive pipeline of high-potential companies to contribute to economic growth, while encouraging reinvestment in the city’s future entrepreneurs.
*As measured by changes in employment on average five years after founding, as presented in the Kauffman Foundation’s High Growth Index.
