Legume or leg up, what do you see?

Enactus is an international organization dedicated to enabling progress through entrepreneurial action. We provide a platform for university students to collaborate with business and academic leaders in the development of entrepreneurial-based projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities. The quality and impact of the students’ projects are evaluated by leading executives through a series of regional, national and global competitions. The Enactus experience not only transforms the lives of the people we serve, it also transforms the lives of the students as they develop into entrepreneurially-minded, socially-responsible leaders.
