About Enactus

ENACTUS is an international non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action that provides a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the centre of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, the students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. At St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Kolkata, ENACTUS operates in association with Entrepreneurship Development Cell. With its own running R&D division, it has two existing social projects: Talking Pots and Project Shuddhi. Talking Pots, which enables rural women to gain additional income by selling pottery and Project Shuddhi, which endeavours to improve the poor water quality system of Uluberia, a district in West Bengal. The beneficiaries of these projects imbibe diversity and are adept at carrying out their businesses, leading to healthy self-sufficiency among the economically backward sections of the society. Enactus SXC has also done well in the Enactus National Competition, which showcases the work done by various colleges, every year. Enactus seeks to take actions which improve the living conditions and positively impact the lives of those who need it.

I would give you 7.5/10 on your inputs, which is brilliant. Pulling off such an event is commendable. I’m glad to have been a part of BizTatva and look forward to continue my association with EDC over a long horizon.

B-plan events at commerce colleges are myopic usually because of the limited technical skillset that the stream provides. But the format adopted by EDC for their event, The Pitch at BizTatva eliminated this drawback so well and in fact made the event interesting throughout the 3 days of its run.

I have been associated with EDC since its inception. And the growth that EDC has displayed is tremendous. From a stand-alone intra-college business plan event to a 4 day National Entrepreneurial Simulation Convention. It has been an out-of-the-world experience.

The Pitch at BizTatva has been one of the greatest business plan events I have been a part of, in terms of format. I was doubtful about its execution, but the EDC members were confident and the same reflected on the day of the event where everything was so professional and smooth. Didn’t look like a first-time event at all.

EDC has been the most beautiful journey of my life. Right from day one, you get the feel of a startup along with a vision to take it to heights unfathomable. The growth opportunities here were immense, which started with expanding horizons through interaction with students from various disciplines to maintaining unity in diversity. The best thing was to start from zero, a clean slate. It offered flexibility of designing new events without questioning our ability to pull it off. Ultimately, EDC was like living on the edge of a cliff and I am happy to have pulled it off.
