Connect & Network
As diverse and robust as the university's innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem is, there is no shortage of opportunities for students, faculty, alumni, investors, business owners, and community members to connect and network. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person events have been canceled or postponed for the time being; however, a number of programs and events have gone virtual. Check below to find and participate in upcoming webinars and online courses.
A series of hands-on workshops developed to teach faculty and graduate students relevant business concepts and skills, inform them of available startup resources at UMD and how to take advantage of those resources, provide them with access to legal support and advice surrounding their startups, as well as offering faculty and graduate students the opportunity to develop applicable skills and attain new tools to activate transformational impact.
To bring Shell Makeathon to a close, join us live as we announce winners, discuss impacts, and hear from partners that made this all possible. During the event, you will be able to vote on your favorite project to help decide the Audience Choice Winner!
