Boat rental service Boatsetter was selected as one of three South Florida companies as Endeavor Entrepreneurs at Endeavor’s 76th International Selection Panel.

The three businesses will now begin receiving services from Endeavor that include mentorship and access to capital, global markets and talent. The other two companies are Entic and Mediconecta.

“Boatsetter, Entic and Mediconecta exemplify the high-impact traits that we select in our Endeavor Entrepreneurs, and it is a privilege to welcome their three technology companies into the Endeavor Miami portfolio,” Laura Maydón, managing director of Endeavor Miami, said in a statement.

Founded by Andy Sturner and Jaclyn Baumgarten, Boatsetter offers boat rentals in ports worldwide. Last August, Boatsetter purchased competitor Boatbound and the company recently entered a strategic partnership with Arbnb to provide exclusive nautical experiences in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami and Barcelona, Spain.

Endeavor’s ISP took place over two and a half days in which more than 50 entrepreneurs from 18 countries in the Endeavor network convened for interviews and networking.

“Endeavor was founded 20 years ago with a belief in the power of high-impact entrepreneurs to change lives and transform entire cities and countries,” Endeavor co-founder and CEO Linda Rottenberg said. “At each selection panel we hold, I’m reminded of just how true that is — and just how far that belief has spread across the world. The passion that entrepreneurs, panelists and staff brought to our final ISP of our 20th Anniversary year in Miami is a testament to the potential of this movement.”
