Enactus

Enactus Team at 2013 CompetitionEnactus (formerly SIFE) uses the power of free enterprise and entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world. Enactus teams on over 1600 university campuses in 37 countries prepare the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders to serve their communities as they develop community empowerment projects that apply the business content learned in the classroom to solutions for real world problems.  Using a business mindset and an entrepreneurial approach, Enactus projects empower people to improve their lives—a collaborative “up by your own bootstraps” approach based on the “give a man a fish and he eats for a day—teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime” approach. The Enactus triple bottom line is: People, Profit, & Planet.
