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 group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole

Enactus Team in DallasOur Purpose

To enable progress through entrepreneurial action.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together student, academic, and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.

Guided by academic advisors and business experts, the student leaders of Enactus create and implement community empowerment projects around the globe. The experience not only transforms lives but also helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world.

Our Commitment

Together we pledge to take action. Together we commit to applying our passions and talents and ideas to impact as many lives as we can. Not to hand out help to people in need, but to work side-by-side with them to create opportunity. So every person and community we touch is empowered to live up to their fullest potential.
