We are a team of tax advisors with over 15 years of combined experience specializing in capturing R&D credits. But, why do we do what we do? What is our mission at Endeavor? How are we different?
Well, we felt limited in our prior roles at national tax advisory firms. We saw the R&D credit evolving and improving, but the consulting services surrounding it stagnating. As a result, we founded Endeavor to better serve the American Taxpayer. To us, that means providing more flexibility in our services. We are pragmatic, responsive, forward-thinking, and service-obsessed. It is all about client service for us - We thrive on quality, efficient value delivery.
Our aim is to build lasting relationships by delivering value year-over-year, while streamlining our services along the way so that our clients can dedicate less time to OUR process, and focus on THEIR core competencies.
