StartupUMD Business Fundamentals Workshops

What: A series of hands-on workshops developed collaboratively by UM Ventures, Mtech, and Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship specifically for UMD faculty and graduate students to teach business concepts and skills, startup resources and how to take advantage of them, legal issues surrounding startups and many other practical know-how. Most workshops are offered two separate times during a week to allow for a more flexible schedule.

Place: unless noted otherwise, workshops are held at Startup UMD Diamondback Garage, 7878 Diamondback Drive, College Park, MD . Diamondback Garage is located in the back of The Hotel, an easy walk from many campus location. However if you decide to drive, please park in the surface lot behind The Hotel as parking is significantly cheaper than the hotel's garage.
