As a member of an Enactus United States team, you'll be joining a worldwide network of more than 48,000 students who are each making their own contribution toward our shared mission of creating a better world through the positive power of business. It's an experience that will change the lives of those in need and quite possibly your own as well.
Enactus United States students are talented, hard-working, value-driven leaders that blend a competitive spirit and drive to succeed with a sense of integrity and desire to give something back. The Enactus experience is designed to be a natural extension of your other academic activities, with the flexibility to create projects that best fit the mission of your university as well as your own interests.
The culmination of the Enactus United States program is an annual Enactus United States National Exposition and the Enactus World Cup. These competitions are challenging, team-oriented events that provide a forum for your team to present the results of your projects, and be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. They also provide an opportunity for collaboration and best-practice sharing among the students, faculty and executives in attendance.
As an Enactus student, your efforts are supported by a global network of academic leaders, executives and Enactus staff. On your local campus, the program is led by an Enactus Faculty Advisor and supported by a local Business Advisory Board. You also have access to a dedicated Enactus United States staff that is available to assist you in your efforts, as well as numerous training resources and events, and a set of unique programmatic initiatives and grant opportunities.
Participation in Enactus United States provides you the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution in your community, while also gaining the experience, skills and contacts necessary to build a successful career. Many top companies have identified Enactus students as the socially responsible business leaders of tomorrow and are aggressively recruiting them into their leadership training programs and key entry level positions.
We invite you to begin helping to raise the quality of life and standard of living for others through the positive power of business by joining or starting an Enactus team on your campus. To learn more about the types of projects being doing by Enactus USA teams, click here.
Business leaders are an essential part of the Enactus United States network; through your engagement you are demonstrating that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.
Business leaders within companies and organizations who partner with Enactus United States have an opportunity to make a valuable addition to their company's CSR portfolio, recruit Enactus students and alumni, increase brand awareness and experience incredible networking opportunities. Whatever your company's interests and objectives--full scale involvement at a national or global level, or a more targeted approach--Enactus United States will work with you to develop a partnership plan to meet your individual and corporate objectives.
On a local level, business leaders have the opportunity to personally engage with individual Enactus teams in their community by serving on a team's Business Advisory Board. Whether you are a small business owner or corporate employee looking for local engagement opportunities, your active participation with a local Enactus team will allow you to experience the personal and professional rewards that come from contributing your time to support the work of Enactus students.
As a whole, active participation with Enactus offers business leaders incredible engagement, recruiting and networking opportunities at a local, national and international level. But just as importantly, your participation provides you the opportunity to demonstrate that the positive power of business goes beyond the traditional bottom line. When smart business practices are applied toward the greater good, we can impact more than profits. We can change lives and make the world a better place.
We invite you to learn more about becoming a corporate or organizational partner, to get involved personally as a local Business Advisory Board Member or to visit with someone at Enactus United States about other engagement opportunities.
Enactus is more than just another student organization to add to your campus. Participating colleges and universities join a network of institutions and academic leaders from around the world, as well as executives and companies that support both Enactus United States and the Enactus Worldwide organization.

The Enactus program is designed to serve as a natural extension of your students' academic activities.
