Enactus

Enactus provides the perfect platform to realise student innovation. Through our extensive support network with experts from academia and industry, anyone with an idea and a passion for social change is able to build a project that fosters real, tangible social impact.

Enactus holds a diverse set of events designed to help train and develop our students to better run projects. These events have a wider focus of increasing student awareness of social entrepreneurship and empowering them to get involved and make a difference.

Our students work on delivering real social change to communities around the globe. Through entrepreneurial innovation and a passion to make a difference, we work to develop sustainable business models which empower those in need.
