Enrou, a start-up formed by a group of UCLA students who formerly worked for the UCLA Volunteer Center, won the $400,000 prize at the inaugural Forbes Pressure Cooker on October 21, 2014. Ann Wang represented Enrou in the Pressure Cooker pitch contest. Wang, a UCLA alum, worked in the UCLA Government & Community Relations’ Volunteer Center during all four of her undergraduate years at UCLA. From 2010 to 2013, Wang created and executed a variety of service events. She also contributed to the Social Media & Marketing Internship Program where undergraduate students combine their passions for technology and community service.
The UCLA Volunteer Center, a department of Government & Community Relations, is excited to participate in the launch of UCLA Spark, an online crowdfunding platform that allows multiple donors to contribute small amounts toward a specific project. The Center hopes to raise $15,000 by March 19 to fund ten One Bus, One Cause projects.
