“A head for business. A heart for the world.”
Enactus, formerly SIFE, is an entrepreneurial organization focused on helping the community. Started in 1975, Enactus has grown to include 57,000 students in 39 countries.
Participating students form teams on their university 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. 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.
