Enactus Nottingham

Enactus Nottingham is an initiative within The University of Nottingham where students are given a platform to create social enterprises focused around solving large economic, environmental and social problems both locally in Nottingham as well as internationally.

This can range from a solar powered fishing light solving over fishing in Malawi, to a furniture recycling plant located on the Universities campus, highlighting the range of social enterprises students from Enactus Nottingham are involved in on a day to day basis. 

This allows students from The University of Nottingham to graduate from the institute as highly qualified social entrepreneurs who have had extensive experience in order to venture into the wider world to create positive change in society.

Top 3 learnings

2 Our biggest learning curve is that finance should never be a constraint to a project, as if what you are doing is worthwhile, the finances will follow

3 People management is key and is something that can be the making of a project.
