Enactus McGill is a group of talented and motivated students from McGill University striving to make a difference in their community and improving the quality of life through entrepreneurial action.
This organisation is driven exclusively by students representing all faculties within McGill University, and we are proud to showcase our university not only to our community partners but to students from all across Canada during Regional and National Competitions.
We strive to create a long-term impact on the communities and businesses that we are involved with. Whether it be by providing education to Syrian refugees, empowering young students to become entrepreneurs or decreasing the food insecurity in Montreal, our projects reach a diverse community both locally and nationally.
Enactus McGill is proud to have recently initiated several unique entrepreneurial projects to benefit the Montreal community.
Lastly, our vision is to become a key actor of social entrepreneurship both at the McGill and at the Montreal scale. In other words, we envision a brighter future where we advance social innovation through our impactful projects’, our empowering events, and our engagement with our community partners.
What Enactus Represents
Entrepreneurial—initiating business ideas and solutions with passion and innovation.
Action—the experience of sustainable impact, activated with integrity.
Us—student, academic and business leaders collaborating to create a better world.
Enactus is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. We provide a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, our students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. Our work transforms both the lives of the people we serve, and in turn, the lives of our students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.
Like in business, we believe that competition encourages creativity and rewards results. For Enactus, it means more lives impacted. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to showcase the impact of their outreach efforts and to be evaluated by executives serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup to experience excellence in competition, collaboration and celebration.
