Our Story

Bettering our community using an entrepreneurial spirit

The University of Florida Enactus team was founded in 2000 with only 10 students. Today, there are over 40 Enactus leaders passionate about creating a difference in their communities. UF Enactus offers students the opportunity to put the skills you learn in the classroom into practice while serving your community. Our leaders are energized by the opportunity to work with our local community to make a difference in their lives. We are fortunate to have a large network of supportive business partners who assist us in our projects and provide valuable training on topics such as project management, results measurement, and effective delegation.

We operate 3 social entrepreneurship projects that target various social needs in the community
