The Endeavor Gala 2019
November 2019. New York City, Spring Studios
In November 2019, Endeavor held their annual Gala, bringing together 500 network members, including global entrepreneurs, top investors, and international industry leaders. Empire was proud to once again support this year’s gala to raise critical funds to support the high-impact entrepreneurship movement around the world.
The Gala once again took place at Spring Studios in New York City's trendy Tribeca neighborhood. At cocktails, guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres served on innovative hand-carried serving vessels by Pinch Food Design and a full bar featuring a selection of white, red and sparkling wine provided by Bacchus Wine Fund.
Afterwards guests made their way upstairs to a seated dinner in the massive, minimalist studios. The dinner program included keynote remarks by Endeavor Global Chairman, Edgar Bronfman Jr., and Co-Founder and CEO, Linda Rottenberg. Dan Schulman, President and CEO of PayPal, was presented with the High-Impact Leader of the Year award and participated in a fireside chat. New this year, The Linda’s, honoring Endeavor Entrepreneurs who most embody the Endeavor spirit of “dreaming crazy, scaling up, and paying it forward,” were announced and presented a custom award created by an artisan from Endeavor Entrepreneur company Artemest.
After dinner, guests moved downstairs to the Gala after party High-Impact Night sponsored by Dellin the cocktail space, which had been transformed into an upscale lounge afterparty featuring music by Hannah Bronfman.
Empire and the Endeavor team collaborated closely to ensure that the organization’s mission was showcased at the Gala in addition to highlighting entrepreneurs in their network. This year the first- ever Endeavor Store was introduced, featuring products from Endeavor Entrepreneurs. A live plant lounge with hundreds of plants was powered by Endeavor Entrepreneur company Bloomscape, adding an impactful décor element to the space. Guests experienced an interactive, live art activation as Italian artisan, Maria Giannini, from Endeavor Entrepreneur company Artemest, created unique paper marbling alongside attendees. Guests could also share their Endeavor story in a recording studio using state of the art microphones from Endeavor Entrepreneur company, Antelope Audio.
