Enactus (formerly SIFE)
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.
Enactus teams present the results of their projects at regional, national, and international competitions. Business executives judge the competition, provide feedback to students, and serve as a great networking opportunity. In addition to Enactus' community focus, students are given unique opportunities to develop leadership skills and are provided with excellent career opportunities with Enactus' many corporate sponsors.
