Endeavor, www.endeavor.org, the leading supporter of high-impact entrepreneurs in emerging markets, honored the founders of Skype and Joost, Niklas Zennström & Janus Friis at Endeavor’s 10 Year Anniversary Gala in New York City.
Endeavor’s gala is an annual event that hails the achievements of high-impact entrepreneurs world-wide. On the occasion of its 10 Year Anniversary, Endeavor honored Messrs. Zennstrom & Friis as Entrepreneurs of the Year.
“What Niklas and Janus started Skype as a matter of necessity and as a result have radically transformed the way we communicate. More importantly their initiative has invigorated the entrepreneurial drive to invent and develop breakthroughs that will improve our lives. It is the example we want our Endeavor Entrepreneurs to follow,” Rottenberg said.
