My Enactus QC

My Enactus QC is a student organization which operates under the Division of Business and Accounting here at CPCC. It is designed as a natural extension of a student’s academic activities for a more enhanced learning process. Participating students approach their education with a greater sense of ownership and purpose.

Who are we?

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.

An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to showcase the impact of their outreach efforts and to be evaluated by executives serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup to experience excellence in competition, collaboration and celebration.

My Enactus QC is the name of the Enactus club at Central Piedmont Community College.

OUR PURPOSE

To enable progress through entrepreneurial action.

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

How does ENACTUS benefit students?

  • Helps students develop their entrepreneurial talent and perspective
  • Provides employer contacts and serves as a resume builder
  • Extends beyond the classroom helping students make a difference in their communities
  • Global mindset.

Student Competitions

College and university ENACTUS chapters have an opportunity to compete nationally in competitions that showcase how students are transforming lives and enabling progress through entrepreneurial action.

Competitions are dramatic, energy-filled events where teams showcase the collective impact of their community outreach efforts. Students present their projects and are evaluated by business leaders serving as judges who rank them on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for those in need. The winners of these national competitions are then invited to compete at the prestigious Enactus World Cup.

In the United States, the competition process begins with the National Exposition competition held in St. Louis, Missouri on May 15-17, 2016. After two days of activities progressing through the opening, semi-final and final rounds of competitions, one team will be named the Enactus United States National Champion and be invited to represent the United States at the Enactus World Cup.
