Enactus Nottingham crowned 2019 National Champion

April 18th, 2019

Enactus Nottingham was awarded the title of 2019 Enactus UK National Champion at the recent Expo at the ExCeL London. 

Enactus is an international community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world. Universities across the world take part in the programme every year. 

Enactus Nottingham won the title after a two-day competition showcasing their social and community projects to a judging panel of over 80 senior businesses and social sector executives. Our students were evaluated on how successfully they applied business concepts and an entrepreneurial approach to those in need. The team showcased the following social enterprises: 

  • Foodprint – a social supermarket providing low cost food to those living in poverty 
  • CodeX – providing coding classes to neurodiverse students 
  • SANkofa SANitation – improving hygiene standards and living conditions across impoverished communities in Ghana 

Andrew Bacon OBE, CEO of Enactus UK, said: “Congratulations to the 2019 National Enactus Champion team from the University of Nottingham and all of our 61 teams who delivered so much more social and community impact through their projects this year. Every stage of the many competitions were fiercely contested this year and that is down to the hard work of all involved in the programme be they the team members, the business advisers and volunteers or the support from the university and alumni mentors.” 

Enactus Nottingham will go on to represent Enactus UK in the 2019 Enactus World Cup in Silicon Valley, USA from Monday 16 to Wednesday 18 September.
