South African candidates JP Kloppers and Craig Raw of BrandsEye have just become Endeavor Entrepreneurs after receiving the requisite unanimous vote at the Endeavor International Selection Panel (ISP) in Singapore. They are now part of an elite group of high-growth entrepreneurs with the biggest dreams, the greatest potential to create innovative companies that matter and grow, and the highest likelihood to inspire others.

BrandsEye assists its customers to accurately understand online consumer conversations. They realise that the volume of online conversations is too large for humans to hold in their heads; and the sentiments expressed too nuanced and varied for computers to interpret. It therefore developed a solution to this by building a crowd sourcing layer that teaches their artificial intelligence (AI) how to more accurately determine the relevancy and sentiment of online conversations.

20140718 EndeavorSA MandelaDay IMG 0665 300Cape Town, 17 July 2014 – Endeavor South Africa teamed up with entrepreneurs Capsicum Culinary Studio and BrandsEye to make an important impact on Mandela Day.

Capsicum Culinary School is an Endeavor Alumni Entrepreneur and the largest chef school in Southern Africa. Capsicum used their facilities to encourage and inspire individuals to make a difference to fellow human beings - the aim of Mandela Day. Endeavor candidate BrandsEye, a leading online monitoring & insights tool to track online conversations, offered the services of 12 employees to assist in this cause and, together, made soup which was then distributed to the Cape Town Society for the Blind.

The Cape Town Society for the Blind provides blind and visually impaired people “with specialised skills development and employment opportunities that will enhance their lives so that they may become independent, self sufficient and empowered members of our society.” The society’s mission is an extremely important one that is critical to the lives of its members. Capsicum Culinary Studio, BrandsEye and Endeavor are all thrilled to have been able to make a small difference to an organisation which provides hope and support to so many.

Endeavor South Africa, a non-profit organisation focused on the growth of high-impact entrepreneurs, aims to continue to leverage the giveback nature of its network to make a difference on this proudly South African day.

Deanne Friis-Smith, Portfolio Manager of Endeavor South Africa, says, “Endeavor South Africa is always honoured to be part of something that makes a positive difference to people’s lives. We are proud to be associated with Capsicum Culinary Studio and BrandsEye and thank them for the opportunity to celebrate Mandela’s name.”
