Cofounder of www.endeavor.org -- Identifying and helping Entrepreneurs globally realizing their potential. I founded our first offices in Chile and Argentina and identified our first entrepreneurs. I also expanded Endeavor into North America in 2012.
On the Board of Endeavor Global, Jordan and Miami. We have offices in SE Asia, Latin America, the Arab Middle East, Africa, and Southern Europe.

Endeavor finds the highest impact entrepreneurs around the world, having created hundreds of thousands of jobs, and billlions of revenue annually.
In 2012, as noted, I spearheaded Endeavor's expansion in the United States, including identifying our first entrepreneurs in Miami.
