Edu-venture Society supports our members in having a real, long-term impact on the world and in inspiring other students to do the same. Edu-venture gives members the network, confidence and skills to turn their dream career into a reality, setting them up to pursue global careers and to affect positive social change.
As a student-run network of societies around the UK, Edu-venture can expand your connections, and supports hundreds of students in transferring conventional career skills into their dream lifestyle, career, and impact.
Edu-venture supports our community in working out how to kickstart life after university, thinking creatively and innovatively about the direction we all want our careers to take. Edu-venture societies on each campus host partners offering relevant employability training, events, and insights to create a community of like-minded young innovators.
Gotoco China’s founders, Richard, Lisha, and Danny wanted to create a community for Gotoco’ers to help them to build on their experience in China after returning home. There’s a great range of fun and impactful careers in social enterprise, non-profits and education around the world, but finding the best options and developing the skills and experience you need while at university can be a challenge.
Edu-venture Society was set up to create this community and provide a space for workshops, trainings and fun collaboration on projects with a social impact. Edu-venture was started by Gotoco’ers on each university campus, but is open to all students.
