Sigma Nu Tau was established in the spring of 2009 on the campus of the State University of NY at Plattsburgh. The honor society was founded because, after much searching, there was not an honor society to recognize and reward high achieving entrepreneurship majors. Five students and two faculty members were inducted at the first induction ceremony on May 6, 2009.



The first letter of our organization, the Greek letter sigma, looks like a stylized letter E. As such, it stands for entrepreneurship and enterprise, key concepts for the individuals who belong to this organization. But sigma is also the Greek symbol for summation, the total or sum of the parts. Entrepreneurs know that they must bring all of their education and experience into play in their quest for success. To be pioneers of innovation, they must incorporate all that they have learned.

The second letter of our organization, the Greek letter nu, represents how the entrepreneur must navigate through uncharted waters and create a new path. Through creativity, innovation, and risk taking as well as through hard work and persistence, the entrepreneur brings new ideas to life and enhances the world in which we live. The path the entrepreneur chooses may not be the easiest, but determination reaps great rewards in the end.

The third letter of our organization, the Greek letter tau, represents the entrepreneur's tenacity to cling to his/her visions, to make decisions and to learn from his or her mistakes. It also represents the entrepreneur's determination to build something from nothing. In ancient times, tau was the symbol of life. The entrepreneur is one who embraces life by dreaming of what could be, by developing a vision, and by bringing new ideas, products, and services to life.

The official colors of Sigma Nu Tau are green and gold, representing fertile ideas, growth and prosperity. The logo is a square with a white diagonal stripe containing the Greek letters, Sigma Nu Tau.
