Enactus World Cup 2018

Join the Enactus World Cup 2018 for a world-class show of excellence in entrepreneurial action & social innovation.

This is your invitation to experience ideas into action with present and future world leaders over three unforgettable days of competition, collaboration and celebration.

The power of innovation

Every year a select group of 3,500 student, business and academic leaders from around the globe meet at Enactus World Cup to showcase the entrepreneurial action and shared innovation that transforms lives and creates a better future.

The competition

Experience firsthand how the Enactus World Cup shares insights, fuels innovation and drives global impact.

The final competitions are qualified from over 72,000 university students down to the National Champion teams from 36 countries.

Each team has 17 minutes to showcase their projects of entrepreneurial action that are not only making a difference in the world, they have the momentum to create new careers, spark business innovation and deliver fresh energy for social impact.


Through diverse and fresh perspectives we focus on the positive power of business, entrepreneurial action and social innovation to address the most important issues affecting the world.

This forum shares real progress in key areas which align with the framework of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The energy created when world business leaders and influencers intersect with student innovators will fuel your experience, motivate personal change and drive new ideas.


Celebrate the diversity of culture, an abundance of ideas and the synergy of cross-generational leadership in action.

Throughout the event you will come to know the excitement and passion that is realized when a group of people who are personally invested in each other, and the lives of the people whom their work is intended to serve, gather together to recognize, encourage and celebrate one another and the infinite possibilities of real human progress.

Enactus World Cup is an invitation-only event which requires attendees to register in advance of arrival. The event welcomes all members of the Enactus network and individuals around the world who are interested in learning more about Enactus to request an invitation to join the event.
