Enactus is an international organization that brings together a diverse network of university students, academic professionals and industry leaders who share a vision of creating a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. Globally, Enactus works with 1,600 active universities in 39 countries which involves more than 60,000 students a year. By engaging in Enactus projects, students learn to use the business concepts they are learning in the classroom to help others, thus they develop stronger business and leadership skills, as well as a sense of service and responsibility to the community and world around them.
Globally, KPMG has been a major sponsor of Enactus since 1990. KPMG China’s collaboration with Enactus in China and Hong Kong SAR dates back to 2004. During the last three years, more than 200 KPMG China staff from eight offices volunteered to be business advisors for 150 Enactus projects. Working with Enactus, we have watched these students bring their ideas to life to provide real, sustainable benefits to their local communities.
In addition, Enactus holds an annual series of regional and national competitions, giving Enactus students the chance to present the results of their projects and providing business leaders an opportunity to evaluate them. Our partners and senior managers have also served as judges in Enactus competitions. In 2013 to 2014, more than 75 KPMG China senior staff served as judges for Enactus competitions in six cities. KPMG also serves as presenting sponsor for the Enactus World Cup from 2011 to 2014, which is the global signature event to bring 36 country champion teams to compete with their social innovation projects.
