Center for Social Entrepreneurship
Creating a Better World
Enactus is the world’s largest experiential learning platform dedicated to creating a better world while developing the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders and social innovators. The Enactus network of global business, academic and student leaders are unified by our vision—to create a better, more sustainable world. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, over 72,000 Enactus students from across 1,730 campuses in 36 countries are positively impacting the lives of 1.3 million people each year. Teams of students conduct needs assessments in their community, identify potential solutions to complex issues and implement community social impact projects. An annual series of regional and national competitions showcases Enactus teams’ impact, evaluated by global business leaders. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup for competition, collaboration and celebration.
With a head for business and a heart for the world, Enactus is committed to driving positive impact across the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For more information, please visit www.enactus.org.
Since 2003, Enactus India is shaping NextGen Leaders who are passionate about taking Social Entrepreneurial Action to Create a Better India. This past year, over 4000 students from 110 colleges have worked on more than 250 projects that are contributing to and driving India’s Social Impact Missions such as access to Clean Water & Sanitation, Gender Equality, Quality Education, Farmer Development, Environmental Sustainability etc.
So how does Enactus India work? We begin by establishing programs on college campuses – each campus program is mentored by a faculty advisor and supported by local business advisory panel. Through the year, the Enactus India program trains and develops student teams – this is done by organizing and implementing training events that support the development of students, their teams and social projects. The mentorship and trainings enable teams to implement social impact projects – students take an entrepreneurial approach to empower people to improve their lives. Finally, collaboration and competition drive impact and best practice sharing – a series of national and global conventions & competitions encourages creativity and rewards results.
‘Social & Entrepreneurial Development through Guided Action’ is the principle with we have launched the Enactus India Center for Social Entrepreneurship (CSE). This center will serve as the first if its kind network that will bring together student, academic, business and social impact leaders with an aim to serve as an ecosystem that fosters and advances social entrepreneurial impact in India.
