DC gives another historic showing at Enactus National Exposition

The Durham College (DC) Enactus team, Enactus DC, achieved another team milestone at the 2019 Enactus National Exposition, held in Vancouver, BC.

Going up against a competitive field of 69 college and university teams from across Canada, the social innovation team advanced through the preliminary round of competition, earning a team-first berth in the semi-final round.

As part of the competition, Enactus DC members presented highlights of their six social innovation projects from 2018 to 2019. These included Girls EnPower, Grassroots, Money Makes Cents, True Grit, Project MO3, and the Side Hustle Summit. Each project has already proven to make positive impacts in greater college community across categories that include youth empowerment, entrepreneurship, environmental, mental wellness and financial education.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization dedicated to creating social change through entrepreneurship. DC’s chapter launched in 2016 through FastStartDC, the college’s entrepreneurship centre, and focuses on making positive economic and social impacts in Durham Region.
