Cupid’s Cup accepting applications

The 10th version of the Cupid’s Cup Business Competition at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park has opened applications. In the Cupid’s Cup, presented by Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank and the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship at UM, student entrepreneurs from around the world can compete for $115,000 in total cash prizes. The application deadline is Jan. 5. Judges will cut the contestants to the final six in a semifinal round at Under Armour’s Baltimore headquarters in March. The final competition — in which finalists pitch their ideas to a panel that includes Plank — is April 22 at the university’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Previous Cupid’s Cup finalists include startups Brain Sentry, which introduced in-helmet sensors to help identify in-game football player concussions. For more information, go to
