Enable progress through entrepreneurial action

About

Imagination

Every crisis creates opportunity; every struggle offers the chance to rediscover. Everything we do is born from the ability to see potential where others can’t.

Courage

The willingness to try, fail and learn on the journey toward creating something new is just as critical as the passion to succeed. There is no substitute for being willing to lead; especially when the territory being covered is new and the outcome is uncertain.

Determination

Meaningful change is not easy. It requires the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and face often daunting challenges. We have the persistence to do what it takes to achieve the results we seek.

Partnership

Accountability

Every initiative or project we undertake will be judged by the only measure that matters: how effectively we create lasting and meaningful progress in the lives of those we serve.

Curiosity

We are passionate about seeking new perspectives and challenging long-standing assumptions because we know effective leadership requires continuous learning.

Our Projects

TASTE OF BRISBANE

Taste of Brisbane launched in 2016 with its first food tour at Made in Africa, an Ethiopian restaurant owned by Tesfaye Tefera. He described introducing Ethiopian food to Australia as being difficult due to the lack of previous exposure to Ethiopian cuisine.

‘Life in Ethiopia is very different to the life here in Australia. African food wasn’t really popular within Australia so it was difficult to break into the market where so few actually knew of the Ethiopian cuisine,’ Tesfaye Tefera- Founder of Made in Africa.

The success of the Made in Africa food tour motivated Enactus to expand the Taste of Brisbane project to include other refugee or migrant-run restaurants.

BEST FOOT FORWARD

Throughout Brisbane, and indeed Australia, there are a vast array of community organisations that create meaningful change every day. However, these organisations are dependent on charity, which means that there is never any guarantee that they can continue into the future. Best Foot Forward endeavours to help meet the shortfall faced by these organisations by creating a social enterprise that achieves sustainable profits year after year. It involves the sale of clothing apparel that celebrate Australian art by featuring them in their design. In doing so we share the stories behind each unique and culturally significant piece of art, whilst supporting the incredibly talented Indigenous Australian artists who created them.

NEXTGEN INCUBATOR

Next Gen Incubator is a project that endeavours to facilitate the transition from high school to university for students from refugee or low socio-economic backgrounds. It achieves this objective in three ways. Firstly, it provides these students with exposure to universities; the campus, the people and the lifestyle. Secondly, it empowers them to feel confident in their own abilities and passionate about education through a series of workshops about entrepreneurship and social enterprise. Finally, it creates a support network of fellow high school students and existing university students that can be reached out to any time for advice and guidance. Next Gen Incubator continues Enactus QUT’s longstanding commitment to education and helps to bridge the gap between disenfranchised groups and the wider Brisbane community.
