Meet alumni Sriniketh Gande, when asked how Rutgers Enactus impacted his life after graduation he said, "I was part of Rutgers Enactus for 3.5 years. When I joined Enactus as a Freshman, I was reserved and lacked important skills for the real world such as networking, presentation, and organizational skills. However, this organization cultivated an environment that enabled me to grow, prosper, and become the person I am today. Through Enactus, I have attended networking events, participated in case competitions, volunteered at campus events, and managed a social entrepreneurship project. Leveraging these experiences, I was able to successfully land a Co-op my Junior year, an internship as a Rising Senior, and a full-time job after graduation. 
Joining this organization was one of the best decisions I made at Rutgers!" This is the ENACTUS ADVANTAGE!

Meet alumni Justin Liu, when asked how Rutgers Enactus impacted his life after graduation he said, "When I was a Freshman, I struggled to find a student organization that suited me. I spent the first couple months of the semester looking and looking for something that would teach me about business, entrepreneurship, and innovation while allowing me to help people and examine social issues.  I didn't know it at the time, but the organization that embodied these concepts (matched with a group of driven, passionate people) was Rutgers Enactus.  And looking back on it, I truly owe the bulk of my development during college years to this organization. 
More than anything, getting involved with Enactus taught me the importance of sustainability and empowerment.  These universal concepts have influenced my outlook on the world and have already influenced my work in my current role.  While I miss the Rutgers Enactus community, I'm grateful for the knowledge and insight imparted on me that I know will last a lifetime." This is the ENACTUS ADVANTAGE!

We asked our alumni to reflect on how Rutgers Enactus impacted their lives after graduation. This is the ENACTUS ADVANTAGE! 
Cynthia Lin: "During my time at Rutgers Enactus, I discovered the true meaning of working in a diverse team. We needed to develop communication skills, align our visions, and learn to work with the different backgrounds and personalities of our team. I also learned how much we all could accomplish when the right amount of trust and support is provided. Rutgers Enactus taught me we all have the ability to reach our greatest potential as long as we are in an environment that celebrates diversity. I spent my time in Enactus trying to give our members the supportive environment I had and I hope it’s sustained for years to come." #rutgers #enactus #enactusadvantage

Schatze Palen: "Throughout college I learned about social issues caused by companies. Enactus taught me that businesses can not only run sustainably, but be a part of the solution to advance positive social change. Being a part of Enactus challenged me to think about problems differently, understand root causes of social issues, and ACT on today’s problems—all of which have helped in my professional career. It also gave me an amazing network of like minded peers, academic leaders, and business leaders both at Rutgers and worldwide. Finally, Enactus introduced me to a company with shared values, Unilever, and I am still able to be a part of Enactus through it today!" #rutgers #enactus #enactusadvantage

Kathy Meyer: "Enactus provided me the opportunity to get real world experience while helping my community and working with great people! The real world experience I gained allowed me to come into my full time job more prepared, and with a better understanding of the needs of real people in local communities. This reminds me every day to think from their perspective, look for ways to meet their day-to-day needs, and how I and my organization can make the world a better place." #rutgers #enactus #enactusadvantage
Come to Tillett 258 to learn about social entrepreneurship through hands-on work to create sustainable solutions to social issues in our communities! All majors are welcome!

Rutgers Enactus is a group of award-winning social entrepreneurs who use innovations to sustainably transform lives in New Brunswick.

We are currently working on three projects that exemplify these ideals: Youth Empowerment Services (YES), Vets For Warriors (V4F), and Popcorn for the People (P4P)! Enactus means three things:
* Entrepreneurial - having the perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from that opportunity
* Action - the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed
* Us - a group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole

At the meeting, we will be explaining Rutgers Enactus in further detail, our Member In Training (MIT) process to become a full-fledged member, and how you can be involved in our projects!

We are so honored to be able to have competed at the 2018 Enactus United States National Exposition!

En-Act-Us
Entrepreneurial, Action, & Us.

We are Rutgers Enactus and we say it with pride. Our team is among the thousands of teams worldwide working on projects that set foundations for development of sustainable social impact. On April 27th, 2018 we held our End-of-Year Banquet. This annual celebration is one of the ways we recognize the contributions of our passionate and dedicated members. Each and every member is the heart and soul of our team and among the driving forces of the global Enactus organization. Our work is non-stop all year but we want to take the time to reflect on our struggles and achievements. We congratulate the seniors and wish them the best of luck in their endeavors post-graduation. This is the last year in which we have members of our team's first generation. But the foundations that our alumni and soon-to-be alumni have established are not forgotten. Each year we see strong leaders grow from these foundations that you all have set. But like all successful pursuits, there will be growing pains. Except Rutgers Enactus always pushes through the hardships to improve. That's what sustainability is all about. So here's to looking towards the upcoming year! ❤❤❤❤❤
This year for #RutgersDay we're being sustainable by making pillows and friendship bracelets from old clothing! ✌ #RutgersPride
Practice makes perfect but we also value feedback! It takes a village to develop and prepare for competition. But we strive to present the highest caliber of work. Every year, as we prepare for competition, we make sure to have several run-throughs of our presentation. Last night, we had our mock competition viewing to prepare for the National Exposition in May! 
A special thank you to our Business Advisory Board and Rutgers Enactus alumni for all of your questions, advice, and insight. Your contributions are going to make our performance even greater when we present at Nationals this year!
#tbt Two summers ago, our current Director of Projects, Tiffany Fong, had the pleasure of volunteering with @yes.nb's OASIS summer camp as a counselor.
"Here you see me with a fellow counselor at Good Morning America, a trip in which YES and its kids were featured! At YES, children from minority families have the opportunity to experience amazing things like this, as well as going to amusement parks and fun summer activities, for a reduced cost. Beyond the summer, YES provides free tutoring and mentoring services and I can say for certain that they have made a real impact on the lives of more than 250 kids each year. But to keep creating this change in our community, YES needs the same support from us. Please consider donating to this organization that has tirelessly innovated to improved the lives of others." #YESNBcan #RUrootforYES #goodmorningamerica #gma #nyc
The kids that we're helping to empower at @yes.nb love to get creative by decorating crafts showcasing their unique styles! With their imagination and colorful markers in hand, they transform blank cards into to a visual reminder of their goals! These cards will help guide them towards success and know that YES they can achieve their goals!
