“Like David Sarnoff, I firmly believe nobody can be successful unless she/he loves what they do. I am passionate about supporting entrepreneurs and helping them scale, not just for the immediate impact this has on their organization but more for the multiplier effect this confers on the larger society and economy. And I cannot think of any other organization that puts Entrepreneurs First, the way Endeavor does.” said incoming Managing Director & CEO, Tosin Faniro-Dada.
