The Enactus Singapore National Competition is an annual event organised as a prelude to the Enactus World Cup. The competition brings together students in Enactus clubs from key tertiary institutions to showcase their projects and how they have improved the lives of others through their entrepreneurial initiatives. Teams are judged based on the 3 main pillars of Enactus values — Seeing Opportunity, Taking Action and Enabling Progress. Specifically, teams were rated based on how innovative their ideas were, the entrepreneurial element, and how successfully the team has empowered others and ensured sustainability.
This year’s competition took place at at the DBS Asia Central Auditorium. A total of 3 tertiarty institutions participated: National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Polytechnic (SP) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS). All the institutions brought to the table inspiring and impactful projects:

2. NUS — Neighbourhood Noms and Overture; and
3. SP — Mango Tango and Kandila.
After a whole morning of insightful presentations, Enactus NUS emerged as the National Champion!
