Anna Borsotti and Callum O’Dwyer’s success in the Enactus Citi Foundation Pathways to Success competition
Two SETU students, Anna Borsotti, a 2nd year Criminal Justice student and Callum O’Dwyer, 4th year Bachelor of Business student, were successful in the Enactus Citi Foundation Pathways to Success competition and attained seed funding investment from Citibank (Citi FDN is part of Citibank group). Anna Borsotti, succeeded in gaining one of the coveted prizes for her new idea entitled Walk Safe’. Anna was awarded seed funding of €1,000 in addition to mentoring from Citigroup and invitations to training days in January and March which will help develop and refine her idea, before presenting to a panel of Citi judges and Enactus Alumni at a showcase event next year, where further investment could be won. Callum’s idea ‘How to Social’ received great feedback from the judges and is now going forward to the Enactus national competition.
Enactus students use entrepreneurial activity to facilitate sustainable human growth, with the help and encouragement of their faculty advisors and a local business advisory board. Thus, Enactus will be the best path for you if you’re interested in developing a social venture that will ultimately have an influence on the target community!
