Our goal is to host a conference series that expresses the urgency for students to consider a career in sustainable entrepreneurship.

We’d like to connect entrepreneurs, investors, and educators to students in order to provide them access to the brightest minds in sustainable development and business.

We want to share the “Wisconsin Idea” with students around the world, thus creating a diverse global network that collaborates to find innovative solutions to today’s ecological challenges.

Why China?

We have chosen to collaborate with students in China in order to create a global dialogue between today’s experts and tomorrow’s leaders. As the two largest economies, our actions set an example for the rest of the world. It is our generation of entrepreneurs’ responsibility to reinvent sustainable development as our world faces new challenges.

UW Students Supporting Sustainability is a project sponsored by Enactus, an undergraduate social entrepreneurship student organization. To learn more about our mission and the conference, please visit our website!
