BYU-Hawaii's Enactus team traveled to Kansas City, Mo., to compete in the 2013 Enactus National Exposition and was awarded second place among more than 150 participating teams.
The team first competed in April at the Regional Competition in Seattle, Wash., and was selected to continue on to the National Competition. Some 156 teams from campuses around the nation were invited to compete in the exposition where BYU-Hawaii was able to secure a spot in the final four and eventually awarded first runner-up.
Enactus, formerly known as Students In Free Enterprise, is a student-based organization that uses business and entrepreneurial skills to solve real world problems and create sustainable solutions. BYU-Hawaii currently has 166 members, all of which have participated in one of the 16 projects run by BYU-Hawaii student project managers. Enactus students work with faculty, business advisors, and anyone who wants to help to create new ideas and provide solutions to problems.
