Our Programs at a Glance


RAISE: A fundraising-focused program

RAISE was developed to disrupt the fundraising process for high-potential underrepresented founders who wanted to raise capital successfully.

For six to eight weeks, founders participate in educational sessions, receive feedback about their strategies from investor-mentors from the global Endeavor network, and have a safe space to talk about their challenges with raising—or even understanding—if raising capital is what they need to grow their companies.


  • Raise 1.0

    The first cohort of RAISE ran from September to November 2022.

RAISE Highlight: Laura Tirado, CEO of UVA!

"Regarding my fundraising strategy, I think I have always seen fundraising relationships as very transactional, and I think that’s something that’s been a huge change for me. You know, at the end of the day, investors are humans too, and building relationships is very important, and it seems so simple, but just hearing other founders talk from their experiences, I could appreciate how I was just not digging as deep as I should in my relationships with potential investors”

SCALE: A growth-focused program

SCALE is a growth focused program, powered by Endeavor Puerto Rico (EPR), aimed at unlocking the growth and expansion process for underrepresented founders in underserved markets. It will provide founders with a competitive advantage by helping them hack the way they prepare for and run their expansion strategies.

SCALE will combine three pillars: an insight-driven curriculum, special sessions with Endeavor Entrepreneurs and a vetted network of subject-matter experts that can provide hands-on and tactical frameworks to equip participants with the necessary tools and strategies to navigate the various stages of growth, from finding product-market fit to scaling into new markets.

SCALE Cohort

This program supports Puerto Rican founders with scalable business models, actively driving exponential growth for their companies. Our program welcomes participants with companies at different stages of maturity but with a shared "dream big" mentality, creating a supportive environment for rapid scaling with the right tools and knowledge.

"The curriculum aspect of the program was insightful, detailed, and practical. The invited guests were equally value-adding, and the mentors were game-changing."
