From the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, the application period for the Cupid’s Cup Business Competition is open. Notice, this competition is for those who have launched businesses and reaches to alumni since 2001. I attended the finals last year and it was excellent. I look forward to watching this process over the next 5 months or so. From the Smith School:
