Enactus Welcomes New Partner, Tata Chemicals
Mumbai, India. – Enactus India announced a new Executive Director’s Club Partner, Tata Chemicals.
Tata Chemicals Limited is a global company with interests in businesses that focus on LIFE: Living, Industry and Farm Essentials. The story of the company is about harnessing the fruits of science for goals that go beyond business.

From these humble beginnings a market-leading international business has been created, with operations across four continents. Through its living essentials portfolio the company has positively impacted the lives of millions of Indians. Tata Chemicals is the pioneer and market leader in India’s branded Iodized salt segment. With the introduction of an innovative, low-cost, nanotechnology-based water purifier, it is providing affordable, safe drinking water to the masses.
Tata Chemicals is the world’s second largest producer of soda ash with manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America. The company’s industry essentials product range provides key ingredients to some of the world’s largest manufacturers of glass, detergents and other industrial products.

About the Enactus World Cup
Once a year, the National Champion Enactus teams from around world meet at World Cup where they present the results of their community outreach projects to a prestigious group of international business leaders. Through a written annual report and live audio visual presentation, teams will be evaluated based on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
Competing teams are divided among eight opening round leagues, each with approximately five teams. From the opening round of competition, two teams from each league advance to the semi-final round with four teams winning a spot in the final round of competition. Eventually one team will be declared the best and win the coveted title of Enactus World Cup Champion.

In addition to the competition, events such as the culture fair provide an exhibit of the rich diversity of cultures represented within Enactus. Multiple receptions, lunches and dinners, along with special activities such as the Top to Top and Top to Future-Top Forums, as well as panel discussions, speakers and sessions provide engagement and collaboration opportunities for participants.
