Enactus is a global community of student, academic and business leaders which harnesses the power of entrepreneurial action to empower communities and make a lasting difference in the world we live in.
With over 69 000 students active in more than 1600 tertiary institutions in 36 countries around the world, Enactus aims to create sustainable community development projects through entrepreneurial action. Students are encouraged to implement sustainable, smart business solutions, which address the unique needs of the community. Each year, students from each Enactus chapter form teams to compete at a National Competition, where they present on their community development projects. This competition provides students with the opportunity to represent their country in the Enactus World Cup.
Enactus UP represents the University of Pretoria’s chapter of this organisation and is one of the most diverse chapters in South Africa.
