Social Entrepreneurship

banner_beyond_classroom[1]CLE is proud to sponsor a number of organizations which seek to promote social goals both locally and abroad.



Enactus is a global organization dedicated to addressing social issues through social entrepreneurship. The 69,000 students involved worldwide have the opportunity to design, implement, and grow real, social issue-driven businesses to present at Enactus competitions. Enactus teams will first compete at a regional level for the opportunity to represent their country at the Enactus World Cup. At the global event, teams representing 37 countries come together to present their businesses for the chance to win recognition and funding from Enactus partner companies such as Ford. Close to $100,000 was awarded in 2017. In addition to competing, Enactus students collaborate and build lasting friendships with one another at events like the World Cup, Collaboration Summits, and Socials. JHU Enactus invites Hopkins students passionate about addressing social issues to become a part of our innovative and dedicated community of entrepreneurs. For more information, please email
