Business Development

Our External team is the driving force behind the scene that enables our projects and team by; securing funding through grants/proposals, developing new relationships with potential business advisors, and operating small for-profit businesses. We’re a group of scrappy, highly driven, performance focused individuals who ensure that the rest of our team has all the resources that they need in order to help make our community a better place.

The External Team's goals this year include:

1. Developing a competition fund to help our team pay for the 3 major competitions we attend every school year.

2. Securing at least one advisor for every single one of our projects, and VP teams.

3. Launch a minimum of 3 new ventures. These are the small businesses that our team operates year-round in order to help fund all of our endeavours.

YOU’LL HAVE TO HAVE:

  • Initiative, and lots of it
  • A ‘win-win’ mentality to partnerships
  • An attention to detail
  • A never quit attitude, and the ability to take criticism and learn from it.

IT’D BE GREAT IF YOU HAVE:

  • Sales or business development experience
  • Experience with ‘cold reach outs’

YOU’LL BE DOING THINGS LIKE:

  • Developing and executing a partner strategy to drive partnerships with high-growth companies in Ottawa and other cities across Canada.
  • Engaging business advisors and getting them excited about Enactus
  • Working with community partners to hold recruitment events with uOttawa students
  • Representing Enactus at partner and industry events

INTERVIEW DELIVERABLE

Come prepared to cold-call a ‘random’ business executive, and try to engage them to partner with our team – you’ll essentially be selling Enactus uOttawa.
