Can you tell us more about the work you do with Endeavor?
Our mission is to create an economic multiplier effect by helping to scale up a special kind of entrepreneur that we call high-impact entrepreneurs. High-impact means 3 things – you have the best ideas, you have the skills to create something large and successful, and you pay it forward. Paying it forward means once you become successful, you reinvest your success in other entrepreneurs by mentoring them, sharing your networks with them, and even investing in them. The goal of Endeavor is that we help you, and then you multiply yourself by 10 so that there are others who become like you. Hopefully, that next layer of 10 will create another 10. We’ve been doing this now for 5 and half years in the Philippines. In Endeavor, we have a very particular screening process. Our entrepreneurs have to be 3M – magaling (skilled in developing a product, hiring people, and running a business), matino (ethical), and mapagbigay (expecting them to pay it forward as we go along.)
