On May 10, Enactus QUT achieved an enormous milestone which was QUTChangemakers, QUT’s first social entrepreneurship competition by Enactus QUT.
As President of Enactus QUT, I sought to seek a new way in which Enactus QUT functioned – taking student engagement and retainment to a new level and to create a social-entrepreneurially-minded community within QUT. And last night we accomplished just that.
At the beginning of semester, we challenged students to be a QUTChangemaker through our program and competition by creating sustainable social enterprises that addressed issues we face within our own community. Unlike a regular startup weekend, this competition went for 10 weeks and sought to create direct impact by seeing ideas mature and become a reality.
