Endeavor Northwest Arkansas (NWA) is Endeavor’s sixth launch in the U.S. since 2012, when the organization first began exploring the possibility of entering the country. After years of assuming that American entrepreneurs did not need the range of networking, mentoring, and support services provided by Endeavor, it became clear that many cities, especially those in the Heartland, lacked strong entrepreneurship ecosystems despite being home to immense talent pools. With a growing talent pool from a nationally-ranked university, as well as Fortune 500 companies with strong local ties and an interest in reinvesting, Northwest Arkansas is on track to become a hub of innovation for startup ventures. Endeavor sees enormous opportunity for its model to address some of the key challenges Northwest Arkansas – like many U.S. regions – faces, such as the exodus of highly educated individuals to cities with larger entrepreneurial support systems. Endeavor NWA will focus on selecting high-impact entrepreneurs and businesses from multiple sectors that have the potential to scale significantly and reinvest back into the country by mentoring and providing financial support for successive generations of entrepreneurs. The office will concentrate on providing these entrepreneurs with access to capital, talent and a worldwide network mentor and peer connections.Something looks off?
