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
As SIFE grew over 40 years, it has expanded and grown more than the founders could have ever imagined. Thus, the entire organization saw it fit to make a change to incorporate the expansion of the goal and size of the entity. The explanation for the name and logo change is as follows:
"There's really nothing else quite like it," added Rohrs. "We needed a name that reflected that uniqueness. Something that captured the entrepreneurial spirit that fuels everything we do. We were also eager to create a name that reflected how global this organization has become. Entrepreneurial action is not something that is relevant to a single culture or nationality. What we do is just as powerful in Shanghai as it is in Sao Paulo, just as transformative whether we are in San Francisco or Sydney. In fact, the name change is only the first step in an aggressive effort to expand the organization's level of reach and impact. Equally important is the influence Enactus has on the 57,000 students that participate in creating projects each year. The experience has a profound impact on the kind of leaders they become, and the type of work they choose to do in their lives."
All of us who are a part of formally known SIFE, now ENACTUS invite you to join us in a renewal of the SIFE brand, and to strengthen what it stands for, together.
