FAYETTE, Iowa (May 21, 2014) - UIU Enactus team recently attended the 2014 Enactus United States National Exposition as an observing team. The national expo offers a unique cross-generational leadership experience for college students, including academic and business leaders. A competition showcasing how college Enactus chapters are transforming lives and enabling progress through entrepreneurial action is held during the expo.
"Attending the national expo was a great opportunity for our young team to have an overview of what it is like to compete at nationals," said Gaetan Bérard, UIU Enactus member and Upper Iowa student from Martinique. "Beyond the experience of the competition, it opened the door for opportunities for networking, collaboration and best-practice sharing."
