In the fall of 2001, utilizing a grant from the Charles Sandage Charitable Trust, the Business Department of Simpson College organized a group of students whose goal was to establish a SIFE Team. The initial team of 24 students, led by Dr. Tom Schmidt, joined a network of over 1,000 other teams on college and university campuses in 25 countries. Their mission was to provide Simpson students with the best opportunity to refine their business skills by educating our communities about free enterprise and succeeding ethically in today’s free market. In 2012, the international SIFE organization changed the name to Enactus. Simpson College’s group name was changed at that time as well.
