Belvo’s founders, Pablo Viguera and Uri Tintoré, have been selected to join the Endeavor network. The support from Endeavor’s community of global entrepreneurs will be essential to support Belvo’s continued growth.
Belvo’s founders have been selected at the 29th Virtual International Selection Panel (vISP), together with six entrepreneurs leading four companies (Awan, Puppis, Keelvar, and Will Bank).
“The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify high-impact entrepreneurs who demonstrate the potential to leverage Endeavor’s resources and mentorship to create large-scale wealth and jobs and are committed to reinvesting their time and money in their local entrepreneurship ecosystems to help others take off,” explains Endeavor.
During the session, panelists interviewed a small group of candidates about their businesses, evaluated their potential for high-impact growth, and voted unanimously to select the newest Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
