Enactus is a global non-profit organization with over 70,000 students, academics and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world.
Enactus Capilano was founded in 2016, immediately taking action to improve business education in local schools. Our initial team of 16 students established our first project, Counting on Action, teaching 180 students the importance of entrepreneurial and sustainable business practices in the team’s first year. Now a team of 30, we have developed and implemented 3 projects over 4 years. We increased the financial literacy of nearly 500 students by 65% just last year and are actively working to improve more lives through developing new projects, beginning at home at Capilano University.
Our team’s hard work and dedication have been rewarded at both the Enactus Canada Regional and National Exhibitions, bringing home 5 trophies since 2018.
To create positive and sustainable change while empowering the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders and social innovators.
Enactus Capilano develops strong leadership, collaboration, and entrepreneurial skills in its members through the creation of projects that meet social, economic and environmental needs in our community.
