Enactus is an international nonprofit organisation dedicated to inspiring University students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. Enactus students recruit their own team members, set up their own roles and responsibilities, decide their own projects, implement them in the community and finally each year present them to panels of industry judges from businesses around Australia.
Enactus ECU consists of domestic, international, undergraduate and postgraduate students from the School of Business and Law, who have developed a series of community-based projects that consider relevant economic, social and environmental factors. Our team then presents these projects at the Enactus Australia National Conference and Championships against teams from other universities around Australia. The projects are judged based on how effectively they empower people in need, by applying business and economic concepts, an entrepreneurial approach and the level to which they improve quality of life and standard of living.
The team has worked more than 930 volunteer hours over the past year and their activities provide experience in project management, communication skills, teamwork, leadership, networking and often lead to employment.
In 2016, Enactus ECU were the winners at the Enactus Australia National Conference and Championships and represented Australia at the Enactus World Cup in Toronto, Canada. The team competed with 35 other countries from around the world and connected with global business leaders during the competition.
In 2017, Enactus ECU were runners up at the Enactus Australia National Conference and Championships with a brand new team.
In 2018 and 2019 Enactus ECU were Semi-Finalists in the Enactus Australia National Conference and Championships.
Our partners and sponsors include, Harbourside Retirement Village Mindarie, ECU Guild and St. Stephen’s School.
Through Enactus ECU, students truly become World Ready graduates.
