SOCIAL ENTERPRISES

Businesses are increasingly operating in a way that goes beyond maximising profits and obeying laws and regulations. Corporate social responsibility, which includes topics such as climate action, human rights, health and safety, environmental effects, and economic development, has become a critical component of the modern day business. Therefore, it is essential that students learn and gain exposure to its potential to revolutionise the way we live. This is the main focus of the Social Enterprises division.

 

AIMS & OBJECTIVES

The division aims to promote initiatives that deepen students’ understanding of the impact businesses have on society. We plan to organise events with prominent global corporations aimed at analysing how different businesses implement their CSR and how this helps their bottom line.

Our objectives include:

  • Engaging with local voluntary and charitable organisations

  • Expanding members’ career opportunities and supporting students who wish to pursue careers in business with a social impact slant

  • Developing income-based solutions into social, economic, and environmental challenges

  • Transforming these ideas into investment-ready startups with management teams, business plans, and prototypes

 

This will be done via events such as:

  • Hult Prize that unlocks the desire of young people to change the world through business

  • Sustainable business to combat climate change: a collaboration with the UCL Climate Action Society

  • Sustainable Investing Insight Week

  • Impact Investment Challenge
