South African chosen for Endeavor International Selection Panel

The Endeavor Global Network, an organisation that supports high-impact entrepreneurs from 23 emerging and growth markets across the globe, has selected Merchant Capital Founder and CEO, Dov Girnun. Girnun was selected at the Local Selection Panel in South Africa earlier this year, which secured him a spot at the 60th International Selection Panel in San Francisco.

Girnun said, "I have not only gained insight into my business but on a personal level too. In terms of supporting high-impact entrepreneurs in scaling their businesses, the network's statistics speak for themselves. For example, the average increase in annual growth in the first two years after engaging with the network is 68%. It was a gruelling selection process but now that I've been accepted, I am anticipating exciting things for the company."

Last month, Merchant Capital announced its South African expansion with the opening of offices in KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape.

"With the support of the network, relevant emerging markets are now a possibility for further expansion of our small business funding model. This is an incredible opportunity for a South African entrepreneur like me and a vote of confidence in South African small business and entrepreneurship," concluded Girnun.

"The amazing entrepreneurs and high-impact businesses we saw this week demonstrate all of the entrepreneurial potential still waiting to be uncovered around the world," said Linda Rottenberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Endeavor.
