“You can give someone a fish and feed them for a moment or you can teach them how to fish and feed them for a lifetime. We prefer the latter.”
Who We Are
Enspire is Enactus Ryerson’s conference designed to educate and inspire delegates about how to create a better world for us all. At its core, the focus is entrepreneurship and sustainability and the mission is built on 3 pillars: social, economic and environmental change. These pillars act as a framework to assist in achieving our goal of solving real world problems, utilizing sustainable innovation as a backbone to what we do.
Our mission is to ignite a conversation about sustainable change via entrepreneurship, while empowering students to create an actionable change within their communities and the people who inhabit them. We believe in the importance of building bridges. We offer a platform for like-minded individuals who may have different skill-sets to come together and collaborate to achieve something inspirational. We believe by connecting community leaders, sharing perspective and discovering new passions, we prove that sustainability is the answer.
What We Do
Enspire is a platform for idea generation and proactive implementation. We invite all visionary futurists and enthusiasts who are passionate about progress to share their ideas about change-making. We facilitate student leaders to understand the impact they can make via the power of collaboration. We assist in developing ideas by providing mentorship and inspiring leadership for delegates and key stakeholders in our community.This is done through breaking barriers, creating a culture of positivity, and collaborating to provide students with an intuitive approach to problem solving.
What We Offer
Over two days of mental creativity, students interact with social entrepreneurs and industry innovators that will educate on how to design a sustainable future. Delegates can expect to network with stimulating speakers and engage in a curated and interactive panel discussion about community development. Lastly, the conference enhances personal and professional goals though captivating and participatory workshops, aiding delegates to take the next step in future making.

A Case Competition, Done Differently
This year, we are introducing an experiential case exploration, where students receive the opportunity to collaborate on providing a tangible solution to a real world problem.
What is a case exploration?
Think about a hackathon, but better. We utilize design thinking and a pitch competition to allow students to enhance and explore their ideas. Students also get a chance to network with leading entrepreneurs who will also act as mentors in developing disruptive and innovative solutions.
Collaborate to Innovate
We believe in the importance of building bridges. We offer a platform for like-minded individuals who may have different skill-sets to come together and achieve something inspirational.

Last year, we had our very first Enspire conference centred around social entrepreneurship!
We invited dragon’s den participants, Olympians, professors, fundraisers and entrepreneurs and ignited a powerful conversation about sustainable change! We spoke about diversity, resiliency, mental wellness, sustainability, fundraising and inclusion. This year, we are hoping to take a step further with actionable change! Keep a lookout for this year’s speakers on our social media!
