Ladies First is the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship's commitment to increase the number of women involved in entrepreneurship at UMD. Ladies FirstThe Dingman Center launched the Ladies First initiative in 2016 to increase the number of women involved in entrepreneurship at UMD. We are tackling the barriers that prevent our female students from pursuing entrepreneurship, such as the absence of a peer community, less familiarity with startup terms and concepts, and lack of access to mentors and funding.
The Dingman Center is one of the nation’s pre-eminent institutions where the research, education and practice of entrepreneurship are pursued vigorously. We develop and execute curricular and non-curricular programs that uniquely leverage Smith School thought leadership, experiential learning and our network of practitioners to provide maximum resources to our startup community.
Every initiative is designed to support the Center’s mission within the Robert H. Smith School of Business:
We equip the next generation to launch and support ventures that advance industry and society;
We connect the University of Maryland to the innovation economy; and
We leverage thought leadership and our network to make entrepreneurs of all kinds more successful.
