2021 ENACTUS SOUTH AFRICA VIRTUAL INAUGURAL REGIONAL COMPETITION
This year, Enactus South Africa introduced a Regional Competition as a precursor to the annual National Competition. The 2021 Inaugural Enactus South Africa Regional Competition sponsored by Harmony Gold mining Company Limited is the first regional showcase of entrepreneurial action to be hosted in South Africa.
With the theme, PASSION ON PURPOSE, the competition will kick-off today, 28th April 2021 – 5th May 2021. In addition, Nedbank, our partner for the last 12th years, will also be adjudicating the 2021 Nedbank Ideation Challenge which will be hosted virtually on 3rd and 4th May 2021. The Awards Ceremony for both the Regional Competition and Nedbank Ideation Challenge will be streamed live on the 5th of May 2021 via our Enactus South Africa Facebook and YouTube Channel.
Enactus is an experiential learning platform that helps students unleash their entrepreneurial spirit and develop the talent and perspective that is essential to leadership in our ever-changing world. Through our additional special competitions and challenges, Enactus seeks to activate teams and increase early competition opportunities to all teams with the intention of curating and improving the overall quality of our Program. All of the active Enactus university teams are eligible to compete in the Inaugural Regional Competition. Competing teams were divided in leagues/regions based on their geo-location. In addition, 8 teams have been selected to participate in the Nedbank Ideation Challenge.
The competition is adjudicated on LaunchPad6 with Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited as the host sponsor and Nedbank sponsoring the Ideation Challenge. The Ideation Challenge provides an opportunity for a preselected group of teams to present through descriptive, concise digitally recorded 5-minute pitches and 4-page written reports (Business Reports) their innovative viable enterprise that were ideated and that will be going into the prototyping phase. Participating teams will receive feedback from professional business developers that will act as adjudicators. New or relaunched teams can benefit from this opportunity.
Enactus is committed to being a premier source of effective, responsible business talent, and want to give students an opportunity to apply smart business practices to make a difference in the world, while also developing their leadership, teamwork, communication and project management skills. The NextGen Leaders of Enactus are and will be on the front line of the economic recovery around the world — and they will define how we revive and thrive in the emerging new normal.
