Enactus Italy was established in 2016 as the newest branch of Enactus International. As part of Enactus, Enactus Italy’s mission is to engage the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders to use innovation and business principles to improve the world.
Enactus Italy carries out its mission by bringing university students and faculty advisors together with renowned business leaders, thus bridging the gap between the academic world and the professional one. This is achieved by encouraging each Enactus university team to develop sustainable, entrepreneurial, and social projects aimed at tackling the problems present in the communities in which they operate.
Every year, Enactus Italy organizes a National Competition where all university teams compete against each other in front of a panel of judges from the business world, not only to celebrate their achievements throughout the academic year, but also to win the honour of representing Italy at the Enactus World Cup.
All Enactus competitions are judged following the same criterion: Which team most effectively used entrepreneurial action to empower people to improve their livelihoods in an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable way.
