Enactus UNE

Enactus UNE is passionate about social, economic and environmental issues in the community and are using this passion to utilise and develop the skills we learn at university through outreach projects supported by UNE and Enactus Australia.

Description

Enactus is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. We provide a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people's own ingenuity and talents at the centre of improving livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, our students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of success. Our work transforms both the lives of people we serve, and in turn, the lives of our students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.

Enactus brings together a diverse network of university students, academic professionals and industry leaders around the shared mission of creating a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. By contributing their talents to projects that improve the lives of people worldwide, Enactus participants are demonstrating that individuals with a knowledge and passion for business can be a powerful force for change.

When it comes to planning for a career after university, Enactus students have two things in common – their experiences as a Enactus student have better prepared and qualified them, and their participation at Enactus events provides them with unparalleled access to the country's most successful executives and entrepreneurs.
