The Innovation Project is a new project at Enactus which consists of a team of 4, who will work on a completely new project this year. You will be guided through the process of building a social start-up and learn how to tackle a societal issue by focusing your work around your need group. The team will start off by getting to know their need group, immersing themselves in their environment and talking to as many people as possible. With this in-depth understanding of your need group’s challenges you will find an effective intervention and create a business model to tackle the issue.
