As co-founder and CEO of Endeavor, Linda Rottenberg has led the global entrepreneurship movement for two decades. Headquartered in New York, with 60 offices spanning the globe, Endeavor rigorously selects, mentors, and co-invests in innovators with the greatest potential to grow their businesses and move the needle of their economies. In 2013, Endeavor brought its proven entrepreneur scale-up model to several U.S. cities. Currently, the 1,400+ Endeavor Entrepreneurs, screened from over 50,000 candidates, provide 650,000 jobs and generate $10BN+ in annual revenues. Today, Rottenberg also leads Endeavor Catalyst LP Funds I and II, rules-based funds totaling over $100M that invest in Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
Rottenberg is also author of the New York Times bestseller, CRAZY IS A COMPLIMENT: The Power of Zigging When Everyone Else Zags, published in October 2014. In her book, she argues that entrepreneurship isn’t just for young techies in hoodies. Whether you work at a Fortune 500 company, a non-profit, a mom-and-pop, or a startup, everybody needs the mindset to think and act like a change-maker.
