Peter has been an incredible hands on advisor to both Kairos and Humin. It had been a honor to work with such a passionate entrepreneur.
Peter has been an invaluable investor and mentor. He saw the value of what we were doing at Humin early on. We're lucky to count him among Humin's seed investors. He has worldwide reach and...more understandings of markets here and abroad, and is happy to make introductions to his close contacts. On top of that -- Peter's tremendously fun and simply a great guy.
Changing the world through using my experience and trusted others to back, create, and promote entrepreneurship and innovation on a global scale. First, I need to understand why your product or service is different and why you are behind it. Then, I want to see if we can scale it globally.
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. Early entrepreneurs I found in Argentina like Wences Casares ($700MM+ exit in 5 years) and Andy Freire (his startup became Staples Latin America) are now icons for the next generation. 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. We are now expanding across the US with Endeavor Detroit and Endeavor Louisville already launched and many more on the roadmap.
