Endeavor

Endeavor Atlanta is a global nonprofit that supports the entrepreneurial spirit to drive job creation, sustain economic growth and inspire future generations of startup founders. With seed funding from Cox Enterprises, Endeavor launched a location in Atlanta to expand its U.S. presence. Endeavor entrepreneurs often go on to mentor and invest in the next generation of founders or serve on the boards of Endeavor offices.
