Kevin A. Plank, founder and CEO of Under Armour, has spent the last decade partnered with the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland. And he’s done it with one goal in mind – promoting student entrepreneurship through the Cupid’s Cup entrepreneurship competition.

Following the tremendous growth of the event in recent years, Cupid’s Cup has grown into a nationwide competition. And while the University of Maryland will still be centrally involved, the event will now be run by the Plank Foundation for Entrepreneurship, overseen by key Under Armour and Plank Industries executives.

We’ve built a consortium of more than 20 of the top universities, business schools and entrepreneurship centers from across the country. Regional competitions will feed into a national semifinal, to be held at the Under Armour global headquarters in Baltimore, MD. That will narrow the field to six outstanding finalists, who will then pursue over $100,000 in cash prizes.

The 2017 Judges Panel will be revealed closer to the event date. Last year’s panel included the likes of Kevin Plank, CEO & Founder of Under Armour; Dan Gilbert, Chairman and Founder of Quicken Loans and Majority Owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers; Wes Moore, New York Times Bestselling Author and Founder & CEO of BridgeEdu; and, Arianna Huffington, Co-Founder of the Huffington Post. This year’s panel promises to be just as exciting. Stay tuned!
