Endeavor UAE is proud to announce that Ahmed Fraz & Tobias Bessone of Wavetec were selected as Endeavor Entrepreneurs at the 67th International Selection Panel (“ISP”), which was held in Medellin, Columbia from October 26th to October 28th. Ahmed and Tobias join Endeavor UAE’s growing portfolio now composed of 23 entrepreneurs from 16 companies. The ISP is the last selection stage to the Endeavor process, where the UAE-based entrepreneurs join a total of 30 high-impact entrepreneurs representing 16 companies from nine countries, who were also selected at this panel.

The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process to identify innovative and driven entrepreneurs who are committed to advancing an ecosystem of entrepreneurship. At the event, panelists from around the world interviewed entrepreneur candidates about their businesses, evaluating them on their potential for high-impact growth, and then deliberated on which candidates should be selected to become Endeavor Entrepreneurs. Once selected, Endeavor Entrepreneurs gain access to comprehensive customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs.

Wavetec optimizes physical spaces through technology, including mobile ticketing apps, ticket dispenser kiosks, digital signage, voice announcement systems, and more, with over two million users across 70 countries daily. Wavetec also produces LED financial information displays, which are used by 27 leading financial houses around the world. With technical staff in eight offices around the globe, Wavetec is able to provide high-quality solutions and customer support around the clock to its clients. Within the year, Wavetec plans to separate the business units into distinct divisions in order to focus marketing and sales efforts as it enters new markets across the Americas, Europe, and Africa.

Endeavor’s board members in the UAE, mentors, and staff have been actively engaged with helping high-impact entrepreneurs strive to reach and surpass their current potential. Endeavor UAE aims to create a cultural impact on the ecosystem by providing more opportunities and innovation for fledgling entrepreneurs.

Endeavor will host its final remaining ISP in 2016 in Palo Alto, California (December 7–9).
