A global showcase for entrepreneurial action
Once a year, the National Champion Enactus teams from around world meet at World Cup where they present the results of their community outreach projects to a prestigious group of international business leaders. Through a written annual report and live audio visual presentation, teams will be evaluated based on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
Competing teams are divided among eight opening round leagues, each with approximately five teams. From the opening round of competition, two teams from each league advance to the semi-final round with four teams winning a spot in the final round of competition. Eventually one team will be declared the best and win the coveted title of Enactus World Cup Champion.
As our signature global event, World Cup brings together an international network of students, academic and business leaders to showcase how our members around the world are enabling progress through entrepreneurial action. In addition to the competition, events such as the culture fair provide an exhibit of the rich diversity of cultures represented within Enactus. Multiple receptions, lunches and dinners, along with special activities such as the Top to Top and Top to Future-Top Forums, as well as panel discussions, speakers and sessions provide engagement and collaboration opportunities for participants.
