What is Enactus
En-act-us: 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.

Us: student, academic business leaders collaborating to create a better world
Enactus is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. Students create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. They take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. The work done transforms both the lives of the people served and in turn, the lives of the students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.
