MedTrans Go was among five companies selected to participate in Endeavor Atlanta's second cohort of ScaleUp ATL - a program for black founders that provides guidance on growth strategies and product development.
Endeavor aims to transform local economies by recognizing and supporting entrepreneurs whose companies are not only accelerating in their industries but are also stimulating local economies and creating jobs. MedTrans Go works with vetted medical transportation, interpretation, and delivery businesses and not only aims to increase revenue for healthcare facilities and improve access to care for their patients, but also to increase volume and revenue for small businesses who excel at providing safe and reliable services for our customers.
Aaron Hurst, managing director of Endeavor Atlanta, told the Atlanta Business Chronicle, "The goal of the program is to improve access for Black entrepreneurs in the community to the right mentors, capital and talent into their companies which in turn boosts inclusive economic growth."
Founded in 1997, Endeavor is a global nonprofit with offices in 42 markets. The organization aims to select and support high-growth businesses in geographies outside of established tech hubs such as Silicon Valley or New York City. In 2017, Hurst opened the Atlanta office for Endeavor.
