SIFE Teams provide students of all academic backgrounds an excellent opportunity to network with Fortune 500 executives while developing leadership skills through educational outreach projects focused on the following:
- How free markets work in the global economy
- How entrepreneurs succeed by identifying a market need, and then profitably producing and marketing a product or service to fill that need
- The personal, entrepreneurial, communications, technological and financial management skills needed to successfully compete
- Practicing business in an ethical and socially responsible manner that supports the principles of a market economy
Collectively, the focused effort of hundreds of SIFE Teams and the thousands of faculty, students, and supporting community leaders driving these teams, has created a positive and sweeping force for change that impacts the lives of millions and is literally changing the world.
