To enable progress and inspire action! The ideals of Enactus were on full display as university teams from across Australia came together at the Grand Hyatt, in Melbourne, to showcase their entrepreneurial initiatives in place to improve the lives of people in need. The Fed Uni Enactus team, consisting of 5 active students along with our Faculty Advisor Deb, prepared our presentation for delivery to judges from major corporate sponsors, such as KPMG & Woolworths, as well as representatives from over 20 universities active in Enactus Australia.
After working hard to overcome a tumultuous previous 12 months, the FedUni team were in acompetition with 5 other universities, including UoQ & Latrobe, in a special ‘New Teams’ competition. After a full day of competition, the FedUni Team were excited to be declared the winners of the Best New Team prize in recognition of our work on projects Adesua and FedUni Succeed, against a strong representation from all Unis involved.
The national competition winners heading to the World Cup in South Africa were the University of New England with the runners up being Edith Cowan University. We’re excited to head back to nationals again next year in the main competition leagues and compete for our chance for a position in finals!
