Enactus places fourth at National Entrepreneurship Competition
Competing against teams from colleges and universities across the country, Belmont’s Enactus team made a statement at the April 16 national competition when they came in fourth place. With 533 teams consisting of more than 16,800 students in the United States, Enactus USA held its National Exposition and competition in St. Louis, Missouri, where the Belmont team stood toe-to-toe and came out victorious against much larger institutions, including the University of Oklahoma, University of Florida Gainesville and last year’s national champion, Texas State University.
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. After three days of intense presentations, Belmont Enactus made it to the final four of the national competition, ultimately placing fourth behind John Brown University, La Sierra University and national champion Brigham Young University-Hawaii.
