2015 Endeavor Miami GalaWednesday, November 18, 7:30pm-10:30pm – New World Center, 500 17th St, Miami Beach

Over 300 entrepreneurs, business leaders, and global movers and shakers gathered in the heart of Miami Beach for the 2015 Endeavor Miami Gala, an annual event dedicated to celebrating the high-impact entrepreneurship movement in Miami. Endeavor Miami launched its operations in September 2013 with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and a very active local board of business leaders, each of whom believes that high-impact entrepreneurship can transform Miami. Proceeds from this event will directly support Endeavor Miami’s mission to select, mentor and accelerate High-Impact entrepreneurs in South Florida.

With the stunning New World Center as a backdrop, the event celebrated the achievements of Jim McKelvey, known as serial entrepreneur and Co-founder of mobile payments company Square, and Founder of LaunchCode, and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, a digital entrepreneur Co-founder of Gilt which pioneered the online flash sale and currently the Co-founder and CEO of the much heralded mobile app GLAMSQUAD, with the first Endeavor Miami IMPACT Award. Both McKelvey and Wilson have strong ties to Miami and shared their incredible journeys, inspiring and energizing local entrepreneurs to achieve their own success. @EndeavorMIA
