Entrepreneurs who apply must be either college students, or recent alumni of a university who are younger than 30. The competition is a nod to the first business Plank started at the University of Maryland, Cupid’s Valentine Rose Delivery.
Past finals were held at UMD in College Park. The move to Chicago is the start of a nationwide expansion.-30-
