About Us

Enactus Bishop’s is a collection of Bishop’s most creative and determined students. Our team is dedicated to using our entrepreneurial and business-related strengths to address social, economic and environmental issues in our community. While we split off into separate disciplines for weekly meetings, we never forget our one common goal of creating a better world for us all.

Bishop's University Enactus Chapter

Enactus Bishop’s is a non-profit student organization that works to use the power of entrepreneurial drive to help those in need. Universities have their own separate chapter of Enactus, all aiming to focus on one sector of making the world around us a better place. These chapters present their projects to a panel of judges at the end of the year in regional and national competitions.

The Enactus Bishop’s mission is to bring together the top leaders of today and tomorrow to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. Our mission statement is, “We believe that investing in students who take entrepreneurial action to aid others creates a better world for us all”.

Enactus Bishop’s has multiple different teams. A finance team, a marketing team, an HR team, an innovation week/global entrepreneurship week organization team, recruitment team, research team and a CLO team.

Enactus aims to spread entrepreneurial spirit to all students at Bishop’s, regardless of their program of study through initiatives such as Global Entrepreneurship Week and Innovation Week. with events to teach participating students about starting their own business and connecting them with resources to motivate and inspire them into pursuing potential careers in entrepreneurship.

Enactus Bishop’s CLO initiative works to raise funds and awareness in order to help local families who are affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Bracelets are sold at school sporting events, as well as at the on campus convenience store, Doolittles, to raise money for the cause as well as help create Fidget Blankets to aid those with Alzheimers and other dementias.
