The Enactus network achieved impressive global impact in 2021/2022, including reducing 6.8 million tons of CO² and 9 million tons of waste, and creating 118,000 jobs worldwide. Approximately 60% of students are women and over 30% of students come from non-academic families. Our passion for social responsibility is reflected in these remarkable results.
Enactus stands for the entrepreneurial (en) spirit, the will to create (action) and the commonality of action and values (us) - a term that sums up our mission in one word: to inspire students to make a lasting difference in the world through entrepreneurial action. They receive active support from the Enactus community, consisting of business and faculty advisors, alumni and supporters from the business world. This close cooperation enables new personal experiences, exchange with experts and strengthens the intercultural, -university and -generative network.
