We are extremely excited to share with you our continuation of our new tradition and the hosting of our 2023 Enactus South Africa Regional Competition. This was first initiated in April of 2021.
Last year, Enactus South Africa hosted the inaugural Regional Competition as a precursor to the National Competition, which seeks to activate teams and increase early competition opportunities to all teams with the intention to curate and improve the overall quality of the Enactus South Africa National Competition and the selection of the National Champion Team that will represent our country mid-October in Utrecht, Netherlands.
In addition, the Enactus South Africa Refocused strategy together with the 2023 Special Competition Opportunities will be unpacked to the greater Enactus Network of Student, Academics, Alumni and Business Executives this year.
