Description

Who we are

We are a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world. With the support of Enactus UK and business partners, we help students create projects and social enterprises for the benefit of the community around us. We currently have 5 projects that you can get involved with but we are always on the look out for new ideas!

 

 

What we do

 

Projects

Enactus is about developing the entrepreneurial and enterprising skills of students to benefit their future career and local communities. Students from all subjects work together to develop projects that are sustainable and benefit others. Projects can be anything from social enterprises to more charitable models, the only equirement is that they aim to do good.

 

Network

Our student members have the support of Enactus Alumni and a wide range of sponsor companies. Through this network they receive free training to develop their skills as well as unique opportunities to take their career forward, including fast tracks onto some graduate schemes!

 

New to March 2021: We have just launched the Bristol Student Enterprise Network along with our friends at Bristol Entrepreneurs, Innovation Design and the Basecamp Enterprise team from the careers service! Through this network we aim to create a collaborative and welcoming community for all students, staff and alumni with an interest in innovation, social change and enterprising.

 

Competition

Each year there are Regional, National and World Cup competitions where each Enactus university competes. They help to develop students' leadership skills as well as providing a fantastic platform to meet other university teams and share ideas.

 

Opportunity

Enactus is an opportunity and, ultimately, it is up to you to take that opportunity. We will support you and have a great network to help with that, but in the end it is up to you to seize the opportunity. Enactus is a great place to try things out, develop your skills and have a positive impact on the world around us. 

 

Opportunities available

  • Project Member - Project members are actively working on a project team. There are many roles that you can take on a project and many different types of project.

These members are still a part of the Enactus network, invited to all our events and offered irregular  volunteering opportunities on projects (where applicable) but do not have the time commitment of project members.
