With 14 DU teams contending for the same prize and less than a month left for the d-day, all Enactus chapters are busy preparing.  Rohit Saha, President of Enactus, Ramjas College, in conversation with DU Beat said, “More than competitiveness, we all value the ultimate goal of social entrepreneurship. It doesn’t matter who wins the Nationals or the World Cup, what matters is that the purpose of helping underprivileged communities is being served. Enactus Nationals is a great opportunity to meet teams from across the country and learn from them. We are looking forward to it.”

Talking about the on-going preparations of the upcoming competition Astha, a member of Enactus, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies said, “We are extremely excited about the Nationals 2018. The team is working really hard on the presentation while the normal operations and visits are a constant.  Personally, I am looking forward to seeing other teams’ projects and sharing our best practices with one another.”
