Background to ENACTUS
Founded in 1975, Enactus is an international 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. Enactus UK was founded in 2001 and now operates in 56 universities, with more than 2700 active students.
This year, they volunteered more than 84,000 hours to create and implement 188 social outreach projects that sustainably improved the lives of 7400 people.
Students use innovative and entrepreneurial solutions to tackle a wide range of social needs, empowering diverse beneficiaries such as the unemployed, homeless, refugees, aspiring entrepreneurs and ex-offenders. They also harness the expertise of engineering students to tackle global issues such as sanitation, irrigation and disease. These practical experiences not only transform lives, but give students the opportunity to step out of the classroom and develop skills first-hand and the perspective that is essential to responsible leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world.
