Enactus Students Use Entrepreneurship to Tackle Increasing Homelessness

Prentiss Earl III on July 21, 2014 Source: e360 Blog

They're passionate, creative and filled with the entrepreneurial spirit. Who am I referring to? Students from Texas State University and the 2014 Enactus United States champions! This Texas State team will represent the United States and compete against 35 teams representing their respective countries in the 2014 Enactus World Cup this fall in Beijing, China.

What exactly is Enactus? Enactus is a 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. After winning the United States competition the Texas State team visited the Kauffman Foundation, where we sat down with them to discuss entrepreneurship, innovation, service and the impact the team's projects have had on their community and campus.
