Enactus is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. It provides a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, its students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. Its work transforms both the lives of the people it serves, and in turn, the lives of its students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders. Like in business, it believes that competition encourages creativity and rewards results. For Enactus, it means more lives impacted. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to showcase the impact of their outreach efforts and to be evaluated by executives serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup to experience excellence in competition, collaboration and celebration.
