What is ENACTUS?

An organization with a long-standing commitment to using entrepreneurial action as a catalyst for progress, the ENACTUS name was chosen by abbreviating the core principles "Entrepreneurial Action Us."

ENtrepreneurial - having the perspective to see an opportunity and 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 collection of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole
