Our local teams, MDs and Board members across 42 markets are often a mix of experts that are deeply connected to nascent startup ecosystems in emerging markets and are frequently associated with the most exciting companies as investors, Board members, and/or advisors. It is that connectivity which enables Endeavor to establish a strong foundation in each market and support the local ecosystem. As such, in the interest of entrepreneurs, clear protocols have been established by Endeavor to ensure Conflict Management rather than Conflict Avoidance and lean into the concern so that entrepreneurs benefit from the network. Avoiding conflict (especially in young startup ecosystems), has a much larger cost to entrepreneurs which would dilute the value of Endeavor’s impact in the ecosystem at large, which is why we are bringing these established best practices to Pakistan.
We take pride in our global network of experienced founders, professionals and industry experts who meticulously assess each applicant’s potential, business acumen, opportunity set and timing. The process ensures that only the most promising and impactful startups are chosen, and no external/internal influences or biases are entertained. It is our steadfast commitment to maintain the utmost impartiality and objectivity throughout the process. We are confident in our team’s strong adherence to the organization’s values and principles, as well as in compliance with the best ethical standards. Endeavor Pakistan is committed to continuing its mission to empower entrepreneurs and foster innovation with unwavering integrity and transparency.
