Enactus:Cambridge – Social entrepreneurship

In today’s world of unequal distribution of goods, services and opportunities governments and the international community are struggling to find balance and secure the wellbeing of

all citizens. Social entrepreneurship has appeared as a concept which might provide some answers as to how to achieve this balance. Many successful social enterprises nowadays

prove that the mix between entrepreneurial spirit and altruistic cause can work perfectly together. At this event you will have a unique opportunity to hear from a representative of

one of the largest firms in the world and also learn how to develop your entrepreneurial potential to help communities.

The event will be in three parts:

– Presentation from an Ernst & Young representative from the London office on the work and goals of E&Y as well as what professional opportunities they can offer you.

– Presentation on social entrepreneurship from an experienced member of Enactus. You can learn more on what SE is, how you can start one and what success stories exist out there.

– The third part is dedicated to hearing your ideas. You will have a chance to work in groups and come up with your own project idea and develop it further with the help of our

experienced Enactus advisers. After the event, some of the more sustainable ideas might be turned into actual projects with the support of Enactus.

Join us to learn more about social entrepreneurship and create your own success story. If you are interested in participating, please send us your CV to internal-

vicepresident@enactus-cambridge.org.uk by 15th February.
