Luca Spring, BSc IBA & Philosophy
Working at Enactus has not only shaped my student time in Rotterdam, but taught me a total different perspective on society and affected my career aspirations strongly. How can we tackle today’s social challenges? Is charity actually an effective solution? For me, Enactus represents a step in a new direction, a step that uses the most powerful tool we have – business itself. Through Enactus, I could join this exciting new generation of business. This way, I got to know many inspiring entrepreneurs from all over the world, acquire incredibly valuable experiences in running a start-up and managing a student association, and make a positive impact in society.
Pia Uhlenberg, BSc Management of International Social Challenges
Social entrepreneurship is about making sustainable change and becoming an entrepreneur yourself. Enactus represents exactly that. As a team member, I experienced what it is like to have your own business while changing the people’s lives. I learned that sticking to the status quo will not lead to improvement and to be unafraid of a challenge. Who would have thought I would enjoy working in a start-up this much? Enactus not only enriched my time as a student but also shaped the way I look at society now. I know that for my future career, the lessons I learned at Enactus will be a great asset.
