Employees join thousands at Enactus National Expo

June 6, 2017 — Celebrating the positive impact of entrepreneurial action, recently, our employees and company leaders had the opportunity to join thousands of students at the Enactus National Expo in Kansas City, Missouri.

Honored to be a part of the Enactus National Expo and supporting students, participating in this event offers our company an opportunity to engage with a large network of students and business professionals from across the country.

During this year’s event, employees engaged with several students who visited our booth. Company leaders also served as judges for the final round of the competition to determine which team of students would be named the 2017 Enactus USA National Champion and go on to the Enactus World Cup in London, England. Our Schwan’s Consumer Brands President Kevin McAdams also gave a speech to those attending the event.

A highlight for some was also a Twitter photo contest, where students could enter to win a one-year supply of Red Baron® pizza.

This was the 17th year our company participated in the annual event. Throughout that time, we have hired more than 100 Enactus students into internships and full-time positions, providing excellent talent for our company and valuable professional-development opportunities for those new in their careers.

Enactus, formerly called SIFE, is a community of student, academic, and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world. Being a host sponsor of the Enactus National Expo gives company leaders the unique opportunity to engage with business peers and the educational community while advancing the company’s strategy. Schwan’s has been a partner of Enactus events for about 18 years. Throughout that time, Schwan’s has hired more than 100 Enactus students into internships and full-time positions.
