Alcatraz AI was one of six companies selected to join the Endeavor network at the 25th Virtual International Selection Panel (vISP).
The Virtual International Selection Panel 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.
During the vISP, panelists interviewed a small group of high-caliber entrepreneur candidates about their businesses. Then, in “deliberation rooms,” panelists evaluated the entrepreneurs on their potential for high-impact growth, discussed, and voted unanimously to select the newest Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
“We are extremely excited to have Alcatraz AI, the innovation leader of the physical security world, join the global Endeavor family! We are ready to support the company with our unrivaled network in their global expansion and rapid growth,” commented Simona Nikolova, Entrepreneur Selection and Growth Manager at Endeavor.
As part of Endeavor’s network, Alcatraz AI will gain access to comprehensive, strategic, global support services, including introductions to local and international business mentors, investors, and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs. Endeavor Entrepreneurs have had a significant track record of impact, having created more than 3.9 million jobs, generated combined revenues of over $28B, and helped build sustainable growth models in their home countries.
“At Alcatraz AI, we could not be more proud to join Endeavor and their impressive network of innovators,” said Vince Gaydarzhiev, President and Founder of Alcatraz AI. “We look forward to expanding our mission of leveraging facial authentication to make safer spaces possible, now with the support of Endeavor.”
