What is Enactus?
Enactus Karlsruhe is part of the world's largest student-run non-profit organisation for social entrepreneurship. There are independent Enactus clubs at universities in every country, motivating the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders to use innovation and entrepreneurial approaches to make the world a better place. Our team unites over 100 active students from all universities in the beautiful fan-shaped city of Karlsruhe, who work in 6 different projects or on the association's board.
With our projects, we help people to help themselves and want to improve the world on a small scale with entrepreneurial and ecological approaches. The aim of Enactus is to sustainably improve the standard of living and quality of life of people in need. Together with other non-profit organisations, professorships, committed companies and individuals, we seek effective solutions to current socially relevant problems. To this end, we develop entrepreneurial projects that create long-term economic benefits for our target groups.
Why join Enactus?
With us, you can change the world on a small scale through sustainable entrepreneurship. We found economically, ecologically and socially sustainable start-ups to help people around the world. We put what we have learned from our studies into practice, learn how to work on projects in a team and have a lot of fun at various events that we organise. If you want to work on making the world a better place, then you've come to the right place!
The Enactus spirit has been alive at Karlsruhe universities since 2010. We students from different semesters and degree programmes want to make a joint contribution to the realisation of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals. As a team, we develop social innovations and implement them in various projects. We ensure the sustainability of our work by founding non-profit organisations or companies that organise and finance themselves in the long term.
