WHO WE ARE
Sigma Eta Pi is UC Berkeley’s premier co-ed entrepreneurship fraternity. Our mission is to transform individuals into starters who follow their passion, develop lasting relationships, and create value through innovative pursuits.
We educate our brothers with the most comprehensive knowledge of the startup ecosystem and venture processes and equip them with a concrete set of skills sourced from the diverse backgrounds of our house.
Our brothers go on to accomplish amazing things. These include starting ventures that go on to be backed by Y-Combinator and acquired by Square for $90 million, and finding successful careers at Facebook, Spotify, and Amazon among others.
What do we look for in our applicants?
We’re looking for people who are passionate about their interests, interested in learning more about entrepreneurship, and willing to challenge both the status quo and themselves.
How long is the pledge process and what does it entail?
Our pledging process is a semester long and is centered around professional and entrepreneurial development, personal growth, and brotherhood. While pledging, you will apply what you learn through the ventures you choose to pursue. We provide our pledges with a strong curriculum and professional development backbone as well as opportunities for them to get to know their pledge class and the active house on a personal level.
What kind of majors/background are we looking for?
Our fraternity’s diversity is one of the factors that makes our organization so strong. We welcome all majors and currently about 50% of our members are technical majors(Engineering, Computer Science, CogSci, IEOR), while 50% study the humanities(Business, Philosophy, Rhetoric, Economics, Film, Psychology).
