Vinh Dao, Founder & CEO of Golden Gate Group, was selected at the 32th Virtual International Selection Panel (vISP) held December 12-14, 2022. Endeavor now supports 2,300+ entrepreneurs leading 1,400+ companies in above 40 markets around the world. Congratulations to Vinh Dao and the Golden Gate Group team!
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.
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 which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs, and voted unanimously to select the newest Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
Panelists at the vISP included Lisanne Dorion (Cochair, Endeavor Puerto Rico), Javier Villamizar (Operating Partner, SoftBank), Jay McHarg (CEO, AeroSafe Global), Gary Swart (Partner, Polaris Partner) và Paul Parisi (Head of Canada, Silicon Valley Bank).
