David Shull is a fourth year student at Michigan Technological University pursuing degrees in Computer Engineering and Computer Science. David is an entrepreneur at heart and values innovation, initiative, and ambition. David loves coming up with new ways to do things, and helping organizations develop. 

Entreprenuership 

David's interest in entrepreneurship started in high school when he co-founded a web-design startup. This early experience with starting a business was an invaluable learning experience. 

In 2013 David co-founded a startup called Divnare Health with a group of students at Michigan Technological University. Divinare focuses on driving healthy behavioral changes using data collected from a user's smartphone, wearable devices, and social media networks.

Leadership

David is passionate about growing as a leader. In 2010 David was accepted into the Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership. The Pavlis Institute is a 25 credit leadership institute that focuses on empowering students with the necessary tools to be successful in a globalized society. The program culminates into a 5 week international experience where students travel to India, Ghana, or Malta unsupervised by Michigan Tech faculty / staff to implement and lead projects.

David has also served as the president for the Michigan Tech Student Union Board, as the PR Chair for Michigan Tech's student government, and in various other positions throughout the university.  

Entrepreneurship at Michigan Tech 

David could not be more excited to be partnering with the other University Innovation Fellows to catalyze positive change at Michigan Tech. Through the UIF program David is working on the following initiatives: 

1.StartupTech: StartupTech is a business incubator David is proposing that would help bridge the gap between technical talent and students with ideas. The StartupTech draft is in its third revision and a budget is being drawn up to be presented to the University. 

2.HackerBlock: The hacker block builds on an idea from the University of Arizona. The idea is in its infancies but the concept is to have a block in Houghton Michigan devoted to entrepreneurs.
