WHAT IS ENACTUS?
Founded in 1975, Enactus is an international non-profit organization that supports students to develop their entrepreneurial and leadership skills through the creation and management of their own social businesses.
With independent country operations in 36 countries, the Enactus global community is made up of 72 000+ students, 1730+ campuses and 550+ business leaders, working together to create a better, more sustainable world.
Teams of students all over the country work together to find innovative solutions to social issues within their local and international communities, contributing to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our teams work together with local charities and social enterprises, as well as getting expert advice from industry specialist business advisers and sponsors to develop their social enterprises.
Every year, each team presents the progress and impact their social enterprises have made over the year. The national competition brings together the next generation of leaders to share successes and best practices.
Launched in 2019, Enactus Belgium is the newest country in the global Enactus network. In our first years, together with our 5 founding partners, we have built a community of 80+ students from 12 universities and colleges. We are still young and growing, but we are determined to make an impact!
