Ten teams from across Ghana will participate in the Enactus Ghana National Competition held at the Economics Department Conference Facility of the University of Ghana in Accra.
The event, which doubles as a National showcase of entrepreneurial action, is aimed at showcasing the social impact efforts amongst these teams and compete based on the quality of their entrepreneurial projects that provide an innovative, sustainable impact in their community.
The winning team will be awarded the title of Enactus Ghana National Champion and will advance to Enactus World Cup 2019 in Silicon Valley, San Jose, California, USA from the 16th to the 18th of September, 2019.
From April-July, Enactus will host national events in 36 countries. These dynamic, energetic events bring together student, academic and business leaders from the Enactus network for an opportunity to engage, collaborate and learn from one another.
Last year, Enactus students around the world dedicated more than 7.3 million service hours creating and implementing over 3,800 projects that directly improved more than 1.3 million lives.
In a statement, Enactus stated that: “These experiences not only transform the lives of the people the projects serve, but also help the students develop the kind of talent and perspective essential to leadership that sees challenges facing people and planet as opportunities to improve the world.”
