AET Labs is delighted to announce MIT superstar, entrepreneur, and champion of women in STEM, Shreya Dave as our headliner for this year’s Dig it. Fab it. Make it.
MIT “2018 Innovator Under 35” and Via Separations CEO and co-founder, Ms. Dave will share her path to entrepreneurship and inspire us with her genuine passion and contagious enthusiasm for research, design and engineering.
On a mission to change the profile of energy use in the production of commodities on a global scale, Dave earned acclaim in 2017 when MIT-powered venture firm The Engine selected Via Separations start-up as one of only seven initial investments to back out of 500+ pitches.
She and her co-founder developed a materials technology for industrial separation processes that use 10 times less energy than traditional methods. This revolutionary membrane straining technique has the potential to save as much energy as taking all the cars and trucks off the roads in the U. S. every year! Learn more about the innovative manufacturing process in the video below.
When not sporting a lab coat, Shreya’s busy supporting and inspiring the next generation of female engineers through her featured guest video series on Career Girls, a website founded on the dream that every girl around the world should have access to diverse and accomplished women role models to learn from their experiences and discover their own path to empowerment.
We hope you will join us on May 17th at WPI from 9:00 – 2:00 to hear more from this dynamic young woman and share this special day of innovation and exploration with the New England STEM community.
