Javna concludes series of meetings with Silicon Valley blue chips

Javna, the leading Arab company in the field of software solutions and wireless applications, has concluded a series of meetings with top executives at major hi-tech companies based in Silicon Valley, during a 3-day Silicon Valley Tour organized by Endeavor, in which Javna discussed prospects of cooperation to develop the wireless sector.

The CEO and Co-founder of Javna, Mansour Mansour’s visit to Silicon Valley was made possible after being selected by Endeavor to join its global network at an International Selection Panel in South Africa during 2008. Endeavor’s International Selection Panel is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step Search & Selection Process where top business leaders interview and then offer guidance to entrepreneur candidates. Endeavor provides selected entrepreneurs with customized services from successful business mentors, consulting firms and top U.S. business schools.

Welcoming his selection as an Endeavor Entrepreneur, Mansour said: "I am proud to join Endeavor’s network, which came less than a year after Javna joined the Platinum Symbian partnership. These achievements stand testimony to the distinguished technical expertise and technological capabilities of Javna".

He added: "Undoubtedly, joining Endeavor has a moral value, but the real value hinges on the way we are able to engage the Endeavor network to knock on the doors of technology sector leaders like Dell, Google, Facebook and e-Bay, among other giants."

On the outcome of Javna's visit to Silicon Valley, the CEO said: "Most of the meetings were very positive. For the first time, we had the opportunity to get a first-hand look at the present and future needs of companies. As a firm specialized in wireless applications, Javna will reinforce its research and development efforts to devise the necessary technical solutions to meet these needs."

Established in 1997, Endeavor is a non-profit organization that supports high-impact entrepreneurs in emerging markets. Headquartered in New York City, Endeavor currently has offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, India, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and Uruguay.  Endeavor is currently establishing and launching operations in Jordan, with the aim of becoming the leading supporter of high-impact entrepreneurship in Jordan. Mansour Mansour is the first Jordanian entrepreneur to join the Endeavor network.

Through an ambitious expansion plan, Endeavor’s goal is to reach 25 emerging markets by the end of 2015, including countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

For her part, Carmen Saad, Managing Director of Endeavor Jordan, said: "We congratulate Mansour on this achievement and welcome him as the first Jordanian to join our Endeavor network of Entrepreneurs. To date, Endeavor has selected 409 Endeavor Entrepreneurs globally, representing 266 companies".

Saad added that Mansour represents the kind of high-impact entrepreneurs that are necessary to jump-start economic growth and development in emerging markets.

On Endeavor’s active support program for Mansour and Javna, Saad announced that a joint team will be formed in the coming few days to set the action plan for the next 18-24 months.
