Costello to participate in Endeavor’s inaugural Midwest Scale Up class, a 7-month program for innovative, high-growth potential companies.
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (March 26, 2018) – Endeavor recently announced it will debut its first Midwest Scale Up class, and Costello, an A.I. driven sales playbook platform, was one of six selected to participate.
Endeavor’s Scale Up, in partnership with Ernst and Young (EY), supports high-growth entrepreneurs to identify business needs and goals, pursue scaling to the next level, and gain direct mentorship from people who have been there before.
Costello was identified as an innovative company with high-growth potential that could benefit from EY’s growth-specific programs and Endeavor’s international network. As an Indianapolis-based company, Costello also allows the Scale Up program to support entrepreneurs regionally.
“We at Endeavor are thrilled to have Costello as part of Scale Up! In partnership with EY Growth, Endeavor Scale Up is built to support companies like Costello that have the potential to break out of the pack and truly scale,” said Jackson Andrews, Managing Director of Endeavor Louisville.
“Costello is honored to be in the inaugural Endeavor Scale Up class,” said Frank Dale, Co-Founder and CEO of Costello. “This is a great opportunity for our team to be paired with mentors who have successfully scaled technology companies and developed effective company cultures.”
