About Enactus

A community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world.

entrepreneurial—having the perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from that opportunity

action—the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed

us—a collection of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole

Together we pledge to take action. Together we commit to apply our passions and talents and ideas to impact as many lives as we can. Not to hand out help to people in need, but to work side-by-side with them to create opportunity. So every person and community we touch is empowered to live up to their fullest potential.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together the leaders of today and tomorrow to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. Founded in 1975, Enactus has active programs on more than 1,600 college and university campuses in 36 countries. Through projects that improve the lives of people worldwide, the university students, academic professionals and industry leaders who participate in Enactus are demonstrating that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.
