Student Entrepreneurs to 'Bring Out Their Best' Business Ideas

Since 2012, budding entrepreneurs from the University of Baltimore will have a chance to share their ideas and concepts for new businesses with several successful business leaders, when Startup Maryland's "Pitch Across Maryland" bus tour stops for a rally and pitch competition at the UB.

As the big yellow bus arrives on campus a celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation begins. Our students pitch their ideas for the University and then again for the judges on the bus.  It’s a lot of work but, they are up for the challenge.
