About the position
In order to find out if the venture is making tangible impact, we created the Impact Measurement and Consulting team.

By measuring the impact the ventures intend to have, consulting with them on existing evidence based interventions and evaluating their experiments. The measurements collected by the IMC are used at the Enactus Netherlands National competition in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the ventures and social impact achieved throughout the year.
Each member of the team will be assigned to a particular Enactus EUR venture. You will be the consultant of the start-up, their right hand on the social impact of the business.
