Miss any of the action from this year’s Enactus Korea National Competition? You can watch almost all of it online just by visiting their YouTube channel. There, you will find opening, semi-final and final round presentations, flashback videos, and the very entertaining team parade, where each team tried to top the rest with their creative and energetic displays.
Held at Seoul National University on 9-10 July, nearly 800 people came together to celebrate the entrepreneurial impact made by the teams over the past year, and to find out who would be named the national champion. Over three rounds of competition, 25 teams shared their work with more than 80 top executives serving as judges. The four teams in the final round took to the main stage on the afternoon of the final day and wowed judges with their impact and enthusiasm. After a difficult deliberation, judges selected the team from Seoul National University as the winners, and they will now prepare to compete in the prestigious Enactus World Cup taking place this October in Johannesburg.
The winning team’s presentation focused on three initiatives, which collectively created 15 full-time and 42 part-time jobs and resulted in combined income of over 210,500,000 WON (nearly $182,000 USD). Their projects covered a broad scope including working with a disabled orchestra to improve their performances, empowering newly released female prisoners to start a traditional Korean costume rental business, and mentoring a blind masseuse in the creation and development of his own massage center.
Sponsored by General Mills, Haagen Dazs, Unilever, and Naver, the event also featured a series of impressive keynote speakers who shared their thoughts and ideas on entrepreneurship and social responsibility: special guest Ahn Cheol-soo, Founder of The Circle Foundation; Park Chan-Jong, CEO of Hyundai Marine & Fire Insurance and a new sponsor; and Cho Kyu-Gon, CEO of Fasoo.com and member of the Enactus Korea Board of Directors.
There was also the Leaders Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program (LEAP) for students, supported by The Circle Foundation, which provides training and mentoring to teams that want to develop and execute a project in six months. Five teams participated this year. And as a special keepsake from the inspiring event, students had the chance to fill out beautiful, personalized note cards with messages of inspiration and congratulations.
