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 help people change their lives and give us an opportunity to grow personally and professionally.  As a platform for student-run social enterprises 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 solutions and opportunities. Therefore, every person and community we touch is empowered to live up to their fullest potential.
