Enactus Unimelb

Enactus Unimelb is a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.

Enactus Unimelb provides the opportunity for students to make a meaningful difference in their communities, while gaining the experience, skills and contacts necessary to build a successful career. Enactus Unimelb are seeking students that are talented, hard working, value-driven leaders with a competitive spirit and desire to succeed with a sense of integrity and desire to give something back.

As a member of Enactus Unimelb, you’ll be joining a worldwide network of more than 70,500 other students who are each making their own contribution toward our shared mission of creating a better world. It’s an experience that will change the lives of those in need and quite possibly your own as well.

Why Join Us?

Make A Real Impact

Enactus provides you the opportunity to empower disadvantaged individuals around us. As you either directly build upon the projects or support its operations from the rear, your effort will directly translate into the happiness of those that our projects touch. Without the fear or responsibility of corporate hierarchies, students within Enactus are able to dream large and accomplish tasks outside the scope of larger and less mobile organisations. Your impact is real, and appreciated.

Represent Your University

Enactus is a team-based activity – you’ll be a member of a team that represents the University of Melbourne within the community and the Enactus network, directly contributing to the positive reputation of the university. You will also represent your university in competition with other universities at the national level and if successful, you will have the once in a lifetime chance to compete for a world championship against the best teams in the world. As you and your teammates go about the process of building your team, developing projects, finding funding, overcoming obstacles and adversity and participating in a competition, you’ll develop the kinds of bonds and friendships that can last a lifetime.

Gain Real World Experience

The best way to prepare for the real world is by facing real world challenges. That’s exactly the opportunity you’ll have as an Enactus Unimelb member. This is not a simulation or case study competition. You’ll be challenged to apply what you’re learning in the classroom to develop real programs that achieve real results for real people. Enactus teams teach families how to gain financial security, equip the unemployed with skills to find productive employment, help aspiring entrepreneurs achieve success, and bring economic development back to struggling neighbourhoods. Along the way you’ll develop the kind of teamwork, leadership and communication skills that can only come from real life experiences.
