Description

In Enactus we believe that the power of business can solve the world's toughest social and environmental problems. 

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.

We live by the philosophy of ‘feed a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime’ and implement it throughout our social enterprises.
