What is Enactus ?
We are a global community of students, creating real businesses and social enterprises to tackle the world’s biggest issues. Enactus allows students to gain real-life experience of using the skills of entrepreneurship and innovation by creating projects that tackle the sustainability development goals. Our main aim is to make a difference, by turning opportunity into action and focusing on the concerns that currently need addressing.
Enactus Plymouth has both local and international projects. An example of one of our international projects is PurEgypt which is currently producing a bio-sand water filter that utilizes sand to filter the once contaminated water, with the aim of reducing Egypt’s reliance on plastic water bottles.
We develop social enterprise projects in small teams, with the help of a widespread network of academics, Enactus alumni and business advisors. We work closely with some of the world’s biggest companies, and our members are up to 50x more likely to be hired by our partners as graduates than the average student. We regularly meet business professionals who provide us with advice and attend networking events, both locally in Plymouth and national events.
Alongside this, we compete as a Plymouth team against other university teams from across the country at annual regional and national competitions, displaying our projects and showcasing the impact we have made over the last year. There is the opportunity to be part of the presentation team, which is another way Enactus can improve members presentation skills, levels of confidence, and networking skills.
We welcome everyone to come along to help us make a difference.For more information or to join our society or contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
