The International Selection Panel is the final stage of Endeavor’s rigorous, multi-step selection process. During the Panel, top local and international business leaders interview candidates to identify the most innovative entrepreneurs running high-growth ventures.
Once candidates are selected as Endeavor Entrepreneurs, they are given customized services, including introductions to local and international business mentors and volunteers, to help scale-up their businesses.
Launched in 2010, Jamalon’s dual-language ecommerce platform provides unparalleled access to a comprehensive catalogue of books in English and Arabic. Since its inception, Jamalon has grown to cover over nine million titles, developed metadata for 150,000 Arabic books, and expanded regionally to reach customers in eight MENA countries.
“Jamalon is a good example that Jordan is at the forefront of technological innovation and development in the region,” said Rasha Manna, Managing Director of Endeavor Jordan. “Ala’ has demonstrated the scalability of his business and its potential to drive economic growth in the Kingdom.”
In turn, AlSallal commented on the value that the Endeavor Network provides, stating, “Endeavor offers world class mentorship, support, funding and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs who want to change the world. At Jamalon, we aim to make all books available for everyone in the Middle East, and we believe that Endeavor will enable us to scale our operations across the region. Joining Endeavor, where I can meet and interact with High-Impact Entrepreneurs from around the world, is a great honor.”
AlSallal is one of 16 Jordanian Endeavor Entrepreneurs from different industries to be selected since Endeavor Jordan began operations in 2009. Endeavor Global currently support 818 Endeavor Entrepreneurs from 510 companies in 15 emerging and growth market countries.
