Vistage partners with Enactus to generate sustainable change through entrepreneurial action
SAN DIEGO (February 27, 2017) – Vistage Worldwide, a global organization that assembles and facilitates private advisory boards for CEOs, has announced a partnership with Enactus to generate sustainable change through entrepreneurial action.
Enactus provides a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects of sustainable economic, social or environmental impact. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to showcase the impact of their outreach efforts and to be evaluated by executives serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup to experience excellence in competition, collaboration and celebration. Vistage members and Chairs will participate as judges at the competitions throughout the year.
Vistage Chief Executive Officer Sam Reese said, “Vistage members are courageous and innovative entrepreneurs and business leaders who work to improve their businesses and contribute to their communities. Through our partnership with Enactus, Vistage is proud to support young entrepreneurs all over the world in their quest to generate sustainable change.”
