What SIFE do
SIFE is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business (that’s us!) and higher education (In our case Nottingham Trent University) to assemble university students to make a difference in their local communities while developing the key skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Participating students form teams on their university campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges.
Why we got involved with SIFE at Nottingham Trent University
After hearing about how SIFE works in the local community, Strafe Create knew this was something they wanted to be involved with. After become involved we were asked to come on board as business mentors for the students of Nottingham Trent University as well as sponsor the team in the regional and national finals which they attended.
How we helped them
Working hard with the SIFE members we helped devise plans for the coming year, as well as guide the students with their projects throughout the year, dipping into our pool of contacts when needed. Later in the year SIFE entered the regional finals, which allowed us here at Strafe Creative to flex our creative talents. We helped build a brand identify for the team and designed all the presentation material to match, which included the brochures and presentations themselves (the team was great and even coloured coded the ties accordingly). Our directors even went with them to London to supervise their finals appearance.
Nottingham Trent had their best year to date with the business projects and have asked us to stay on board for the upcoming year to mentor them and help with marketing material. A great project to be involved with and the guys here at Strafe Creative look forward to continuing the hard work for our local community in the future.
