Siegfried Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellows

The Siegfried Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellows (SELF) program is a highly selective, unique experience designed to expand and deepen understanding of leadership and oneself as a leader, connect and learn with others, and inspire initiative for positive impact.

Learn more about SELF

Leadership… it’s getting in touch with your dreams and those things in your life that really inspired yourself. You can’t be strong and great for other people unless you are strong and great for yourself.
