Our goal of leaving a long-term positive impact on the world is fundamental to our divisions.
Within the Social Enterprise division we take the best ideas, turn them into sustainable start-ups and help them scale with a hands-on approach that includes training, networking and consulting services. Food Intercept, The Gateway, The Crisis Project, Baala in Africa, The People's Backpack and VieVita are all run by students, and strive for long-term sustainable impact. You can learn more about them in our website.
