Participation in Enactus provides third level students with the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in their communities, while gaining the experience, skills and contacts necessary to build a successful career. Enactus students are talented, hard working, value-driven leaders that blend a competitive spirit and desire to succeed with a sense of integrity and desire to give something back. As a member of an Enactus team, you’ll be joining a worldwide network of more than 67,500 other students who are each making their own contribution toward our shared mission of creating a better world. It’s an experience that will change the lives of those in need and quite possibly your own as well.
Participating third level institutions join a network of academic leaders from around the world as well as executives and companies that support Enactus. This partnership comes with a commitment from the Enactus Ireland to support the continued development of your team. You’ll have access to staff assistance, training resources and events, unique programmatic initiatives and competitive events. You’ll be providing an important learning experience for students that will last throughout their careers. It’s a professionally rewarding experience that will make a difference in the lives of your students and reflect positively on your university.
Enactus partners play an essential role in advancing our work to improve lives, strengthen communities and develop socially responsible business leaders while realising the business advantages that come from being a part of the Enactus network. It’s a partnership that provides a valuable addition to a company’s CSR portfolio, as well as the opportunity for employee engagement, student recruitment, executive networking and brand awareness.
