2019 Enactus UK National Expo
On the 8th and 9th April 2019, the top 32 Enactus teams from across the UK competed in the Enactus UK 2019 National Expo at the ExCeL, London.
The dynamic, energy-filled event brought together 700 university students, 70 academics, and over 300 senior UK business leaders across two days in celebration of Youth Social Action and Social Enterprise.
The National event is more than just the national competition and includes an Enterprise and Employability Fair with over 20 corporate and social sector partners and a Project Exhibition in which the students showcase their flagship social and community projects. Other competitions include the “Rookie” league for newcomers and the Entrepreneurs of Enactus live pitches.
This year, Enactus Nottingham won the competition after showcasing three of their inspirational social enterprises; Foodprint, a social supermarket providing low cast food to those living in food poverty in Nottingham, CodeX, teaching coding to neurodiverse and female students to encourage careers in STEM subjects and SANkofa SANitation which aims to improve hygiene standards and living conditions across impoverished communities in Ghana. They will go on to compete at The World Cup in San Jose this year.
