The UMKC Enactus team continues its tradition of success. The team of first-time presenters took top prize at the regional competition in Chicago, Ill., qualifying them to compete at the United States National Exposition. The national competition is being held locally, taking place at the Kansas City Convention Center May 21-22.
“This UMKC Enactus team has done an incredible job,” said Ben Williams, Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation Assistant Director and Enactus Advisor. “It is a testament to the quality of UMKC students that we have so many students from all over campus coming together to solve problems in their communities.”
Enactus brings together a diverse network of university students, academic professionals and industry leaders around the shared mission of creating a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. By contributing their talents to projects that improve the lives of people worldwide, Enactus participants are demonstrating that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.
“This Regional Championship is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team,” said Enactus President Megan Darnell. “I am extremely proud to be a part of UMKC Enactus because not only are we excelling in competition, we’re making real change in our communities and around the world.”
If you want to celebrate the Enactus team’s success, the UMKC Enactus End of Year Celebration will be held Tuesday, May 1 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at NBKC Bank. To attend, please RSVP here.
