The 2015 Enactus National Competition, taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre on 22 and 23 July 2015, will showcase South Africa’s best and brightest minds as they demonstrate how they tackled the socio-economic challenges their communities face with entrepreneurial ingenuity.

Through an annual series of regional and national competitions, Enactus provides a forum for teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the Enactus World Cup.

With 27 teams, 2 868 students, 94 projects and 201 023 hours volunteered during 2014 – the South African chapter of Enactus is not only geared to producing healthy competition for this year’s nationals – they are well poised to take on and host a successful World Cup – in October this year.

When the chance comes for you to do something great, grab it. It’s what KPMG, partnering with Enactus have done for over 15 years and across 36 countries around the world. Through collaborative engagement KPMG and other Enactus donors have played an important role in ensuring Enactus and the work it does for social upliftment continues.

Through corporate involvement companies have been able to engage employees, recruit top talent, connect leaders, and build positive recognition between organisations and the communities they serve.

“Enactus provides a platform for young future leaders to empower positive change in their communities. I am so proud that KPMG is in its fourth year as Presenting Sponsor, and its fourteenth year supporting the global event to inspire future leaders and empower that positive change,” says Yunus Suleman, KPMG Foundation chair.
