Crossing State Street

Purdue's First Social Entrepreneurship Competition

In November 2018, The Anvil hosted Purdue’s first social entrepreneurship competition. Named Crossing State Street, metaphorically bridging our campus, it consisted of multidisciplinary teams which created a business plan of a social enterprise. We partnered with Care For Friends, a nonprofit based in Chicago, to have a common goal, solving the communication between services and the homeless population.
