ENACTUS is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize college students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Participating students form teams on their college campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to present the results of their projects and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious ENACTUS World Cup. In addition to the community aspect of the program, ENACTUS' leadership and career initiatives create meaningful opportunities for learning and exchange among the participants as well as the placement of students and alumni with companies in search of emerging talent.
ENACTUS brings together a diverse network of university students, academic professionals and industry leaders around the shared mission of creating a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. By contributing their talents to projects that improve the lives of people worldwide, ENACTUS participants are demonstrating that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.
