On Friday, April 10, and Friday, April 17, the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship will host Pitch Dingman walk-in sessions aboard the Terp Ride bus as part of UMD's 30 Days of Entrepreneurship celebration (#30DaysUMD). Entrepreneurs-in-residence will be on the bus ready to give actionable feedback on business ideas from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Terp Ride will be parked in the bus terminal outside of Stamp Student Union. 

Every student who pitches an idea will receive a free t-shirt to commemorate the celebration. The Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will join in by hosting the popular "What If"​ ​sessions right outside of the bus.​ ​This giant brainstorm session will bring together the UMD community to re-imagine topics they care about.
