UNL Students in Free Enterprise Launch New Web Site

The UNL College of Business Administration Center for Entrepreneurship has announced the launch of a new web site for the UNL Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE).
SIFE, is a student organization that encourages students to practice entrepreneurial principles through a variety of community projects, business opportunities and social networking.

UNL SIFE is currently seeking highly motivated, well-rounded students who want to make a difference in their community and all majors are invited to participate. UNL SIFE currently includes students from nine countries speaking over a dozen different languages.

The new web site will help the organization better spread the message of SIFE activities according to Ben Tiggelaar, current UNL SIFE president.

“The new web site will allow students, faculty and the business community to see our projects and impact the moment it happens,” Tiggelaar said. “Students interested in applying should check us out online to see if we could be a good fit for each other."

During the past year UNL SIFE managed over $90,000 for UNL, secured $19,500 in grant money and had two student run businesses whose sales amounted to over $100,000.

Additional resources on the site include project details, pictures and videos of recent events and recruitment deadlines for the fall semester.

The Center for Entrepreneurship is housed in CBA 217 at the College of Business Administration.
