Enactus is an international organization that connects student, academic and business leaders through entrepreneurial-based projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities.
At Enactus Edinburgh we work as a team to create and see through sustainable and ethical projects which change people's lives and give us the experience we need to build a successful career. As a social enterprise we believe in doing business to create a better world by not simply handing out help to people in need, but working side-by-side with them to create opportunities. Therefore, every person and community we touch is empowered to live up to their fullest potential.
By taking part:
♦ you will be given the opportunity to join a team and take their project to the next level
♦ we will provide you with all the resources to start and run your own social enterprise
♦ you will get access to our broad network of sponsors who offer business workshops, mockup interviews, application procedures, exclusive for Enactus students
