What is Enactus?
Enactus is an international non-profit organisation, formed up of 70.000 students spread across 36 countries, who work on 5.000 projects and impact the lives of 2.000.000 people.
It allows university students to set up Enactus societies on their campuses, and use entrepreneurial action to reach the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, through projects they invent and develop themselves, just like socio-environmentally sustainable start-ups.
Then, Enactus societies face one another in regional, national, and international competitions to show off their work, with judges faced with the question: “Which Enactus team most effectively demonstrated entrepreneurial leadership to drive business and innovation for sustainable positive impact to benefit people, planet and prosperity within the last year?”
Along the way, student members are supported by an enormous network of businesspeople, consultants, academics, alumni, as well as the Enactus UK and Global staff, so that they and their projects can reach their highest potential.
