Endeavor, a global organization with an award-winning model for private-sector development, seeks a dynamic intern to join its Moroccan Team.

The Organization:

Endeavor (www.endeavor.org) is leading a global movement to catalyze long-term economic growth by selecting, mentoring and accelerating the best high impact entrepreneurs around the world. In 17 years, Endeavor has screened and provided feedback to 37,000+ candidates and selected 917+ high impact entrepreneurs. Supported and mentored by our growing network of 2,700+ local and global business leaders, these entrepreneurs have created over 400,000 high-value jobs and generate more than $6.5 billion in annual revenues.

Endeavor’s support catalyzes a chain reaction in the larger economy – driving investment, creating role models, and fostering the conditions for the next Silicon Valley in Rio, Casablanca, Cairo or Jakarta.

The World Economic Forum, the Clinton Global Initiative, Harvard Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Fast Company, Time, Forbes and The Wall Street Journal, as well as iconic entrepreneurs including Michael Dell, eBay’s Pierre Omidyar, and LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman, have recognized Endeavor for its innovative and results-driven approach. It is what led Thomas Friedman to hail our model as the “best anti-poverty program of all.”

Headquartered in New York City, Endeavor comprises 20 independently run country affiliates across Latin America, the Middle East, North Africa and South Africa. Endeavor launched operations in Casablanca in March 2013, and aims to become the leading supporter of high-impact entrepreneurship in Morocco.
