A community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.
entrepreneurial—having the perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from that opportunity;
action—the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed;
us—a group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole.
To enable progress through entrepreneurial action.
Each of us has a desire to do meaningful work.
To apply our time and energy to something that brings purpose to our lives and value to the lives of others. We all have the potential to create positive change.
These characteristics are not unique to a culture or nationality or ethnicity, they are central to our common humanity.
Our approach is based on a common set of values that inform our perspective and drive our work.
Every crisis creates opportunity, every struggle off ers the chance to rediscover. Everything we do is born from the ability to see potential where others can’t.
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.
Meaningful change is not easy. It requires the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and face oft en daunting challenges. We have the persistence to do whatever it takes until we achieve the results we seek.
There is no greater force for change than a team of people who are personally invested in each other, and in the lives of the people who their work is intended to serve.
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.
We are passionate about seeking new perspectives and challenging long-standing assumptions because we know eff ective leadership requires continuous learning.
