Sigma Nu Tau Growing Nationally!

Sigma Nu Tau Entrepreneurship Honor Society, the only national academic honor society dedicated to entrepreneurship, is growing with 23 chapters currently operating across the U.S. Total membership in Sigma Nu Tau is 1377 members. The chapters are located in 12 different states and the District of Columbia…so there is a great opportunity to be the first school in many states or regions to host a Sigma Nu Tau chapter.

 

The mission of Sigma Nu Tau is to promote, recognize, and reward academic excellence in entrepreneurship and to encourage and recognize the practice of principled entrepreneurship.  Colleges and universities offering a major in entrepreneurship or a minor (with a minimum of 15 credits of entrepreneurship courses) are eligible to petition for a charter to operate a Sigma Nu Tau chapter on their campus.  A representative of Sigma Nu Tau will travel to the campus of each new chapter at no charge for the charter presentation ceremony, which includes the induction of all charter members.

 

Chapters may invite members to join in four different categories: student, faculty, entrepreneur, and honorary memberships.  The lifetime membership fee for all membership categories is very reasonable at $50, and new members receive a membership certificate, a congratulatory letter, a Sigma Nu Tau lapel pin, a 1-year subscription to Entrepreneur magazine, and a subscription to the Sigma Nu Tau e-newsletter.

 

Sigma Nu Tau has initiated new programs for its members over the past two years.  The Sigma Nu Tau Video Pitch Competition has been offered in 2016 and 2017.  The program recognizes and rewards the value and impact of entrepreneurship education on student success in academic business plan competitions.  The 3rd Annual Sigma Nu Tau Video Pitch Competition will be offered in spring 2018.   New this year is the Sigma Nu Tau Scholarship Program, which is offering four $1250 scholarships to student members across the country.

 

Another program offered to faculty and student members is the New Chapter Referral Program whose purpose is to encourage more colleges and universities with entrepreneurship programs to establish a chapter of Sigma Nu Tau Entrepreneurship Honor Society.  When a referred institution becomes chartered, the referring chapter will receive: $250 for the first referral, $275 for the second referral, and $300 for additional referrals.

 

Sigma Nu Tau Entrepreneurship Honor Society is proud to be a conference sponsor of the annual USASBE conference!   We look forward to meeting you at the 2018 conference in Hollywood!
