Applications are now being accepted for the University of Maryland’s “Shark Tank”-style event for student entrepreneurs, the Pitch Dingman Competition.
Undergraduate and graduate students from all majors are invited to compete for a record $65,000 in startup money—doubled from previous years, thanks to a generous gift from David MBA ’05 and Robyn Quattrone—and exclusive access to venture development resources.
This year, the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship is expanding the virtual competition by adding three competition tracks:
The online application for the first two tracks will close at 11:59 p.m. Feb. 12. Pitch Dingman Competition semifinals will be held on April 16, and the final competition on May 4, with finalists providing a live pitch streamed through a virtual platform in front of an expert panel of judges and a live, online audience.
For more information on the Pitch Dingman Competition, including eligibility, timeline and breakdown of prizes, visit go.umd.edu/pitchdingman.
