Startup Shell is a student-run, non-profit incubator and collective that cultivates entrepreneurship through collaboration at the University of Maryland.
All events are wide open for everyone to come learn something new! While we are committed to advancing our member projects, it is equally important for us to engage students and the Maryland community through exciting and empowering educational intiatives. Come one, come all!

Shell. Bonding. Fun.
Our students are absolutely crazy. With different backgrounds, experience levels, skills, and interests, members bring a lot to the table for collaboration and knowledge sharing. Get in on the action by applying for membership or participating in events.
We have a great team of sponsors, mentors, and partners to back us in our journey. Their advice and resources are invaluable to students in all stages of development, from ideation to operations.
