Founded in 2006, Cupid’s Cup is the flagship entrepreneurship event at the University of Maryland. Many student entrepreneurs from the University of Maryland have competed on the main stage for the chance to win the cup and recognition for their ventures. This year, the organizers of Cupid’s Cup, Kevin Plank, founder and CEO of Under Armour, and the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship, decided to raise the stakes and make the Cupid’s Cup a national competition, seeking the best student-run business in the United States!
After a long and difficult deliberation, we are proud to announce the semi-finalists for Cupid’s Cup 2013. These teams will be attending the Cupid’s Cup Semi-Final Round at Under Armour HQ in Baltimore, MD next Thursday, February 21, where the top 5 teams will be chosen to pitch at the Final Round on Friday, April 5 at the University of Maryland.
