Inside the Cupid’s Cup Semifinals

Typically, when you hear Cupid’s Cup you think of a big stage, cash prizes, 1,000 people in the audience, and five student entrepreneurs pitching to Under Armour Founder & CEO, Kevin Plank. Yes, the final competition is grand. But what often gets overlooked is the day-long semifinal round at the Under Armour headquarters. According to the semifinalists themselves, this is one of the most valuable aspects of the Cupid’s Cup experience, even for those who don’t advance to the final round.

In February, 12 of the country’s top student entrepreneurs will be flown to Baltimore, MD to participate in the semifinals at the Under Armour headquarters. During this rigorous competition at the legendary Under Armour campus, semifinalists will hear an exciting address from Plank and pitch their business to judges from Under Armour and the Dingman Center. At the end of the day, Plank will announce the five student entrepreneurs who will take the big stage on April 4.
