What we do
Enactus Nottingham is a not-for-profit, student-led organisation that exists within the University of Nottingham. We work to transform the lives of people in need through the power of business. We do this by setting up social enterprises that provide employment and their by-product does both social and environmental good.
Enactus Nottingham runs social enterprises both in the UK and internationally, with a team of over 115 students at the forefront of social entrepreneurship; laying the path for change.
We work by identifying problems and carrying out needs assessments to come up with solutions to real world problems.
We have strong partnerships with the communities we work in, as well as in the corporate world to aid our delivery.
We work closely with the University of Nottingham, in order to harness their diverse expertise to help further our social enterprises' success.
We believe in harnessing the power of business to create sustainable and scalable change to a diverse range of beneficiary groups around the world.
Our student-led teams continually experiment with and innovative new business models to truly transform the lives of others.
Therefore our mission is to:
'Create business. Transform lives.'
What is Enactus?
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for sustainable development. These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us. At Enactus, we’ve found an approach that works. One that creates sustainable, lasting change. Entrepreneurial action and business innovation that creates social impact.
Together, we can achieve the Global Goals.
