In the past, individuals would join their SIFE team, they would create amazing projects, win competitions and get better and better at what they do each day. When the time eventually came, they left their SIFE team to go on into employment, start new businesses, or take a journey around the world. Unfortunately, those individuals were never heard from again, all their experience, knowledge and skills went with them as they left.
The SIFE New Zealand Alumni Association looks to bridge the gap between those that have left and those that are currently a part of a SIFE team. We believe that through the support of the alumni, current SIFE members gain role models and inspiration to develop projects and make a difference. We hope that skills can be transferred, we hope that collaboration can occur, and we hope that opportunities are created.
Through this platform not only are current SIFE members being impacted, we’re also looking to connect all SIFE New Zealand alumni so that we can collectively help SIFE New Zealand grow by building SIFE’s portfolio in the marketplace. A unified alumni network means ease in sharing resources and networks, a way of collaborating business ideas, and being around people to live and breathe the SIFE way of doing things.
