Purdue University has announced Shane DeWael will serve as director of The Anvil, a student-run entrepreneurship co-working space. DeWael is a sophomore computer science major in Purdue’s College of Science.
He replaces Grant Gumina, who was director for the 2014-2015 academic year.
DeWael is a member of The Anvil and recently served as director of outreach.
"The Anvil has quickly become a key place for student and community entrepreneurship at Purdue, which I hope to maintain and grow. I see the Anvil being the place students recollect when thinking about Purdue and what allowed them to become lifelong entrepreneurs. During my time as director I want to create new programs and opportunities for entrepreneurs, inventors and creatives to help make connections that will last and be utilized in the future," DeWael said.
DeWael will be director for the 2015-2016 academic year.
