MIAMI (AP) - For the global business-backed nonprofit Endeavor, this round’s Miami selections were all about food.

The group chose four new Miami entrepreneurs this month to add to the worldwide list of companies it’s helping to scale.

Endeavor’s mission is to strengthen and support individual “high-impact” entrepreneurs it believes can create economic opportunity and development within their communities and beyond.

The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1E63RPf ) reports the group chose Scott Harris, founder of DeliverLean, a delivery service for healthy gourmet meals. It also named Ginny, Steve and Mike Simon, creators of organic, gluten-free cookies under the ginnybakes brand.

Endeavor’s International Selection Panel chose the four in Istanbul, Turkey. They were among winners from 13 countries.

Miami is home to Endeavour’s first U.S. office. Earlier this year it selected entrepreneurs for several tech companies.
