Enactus is an international organization of student teams, guided by academic and business leaders, who create and implement entrepreneurial projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress and help students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world.
Teams showcase the impact of their community outreach efforts at regional competitions with a presentation that includes a 17-minute video, an annual report and a five-minute Q&A period. Business leaders rank teams on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for those in need.
