Quantum Basics for the Curious
Tuesday, September 22 @ 2:00pm
Curious about the buzz around quantum, but don't really understand what the big deal is? Want to understand how the quantum revolution applies to you but don’t have a background in physics?
If so, please join the Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance (MQA) for a fireside chat between University of Maryland’s Vice President for Research, Dr. Laurie Locascio, and Nobel Laureate Dr. Bill Phillips. Dr. Phillips is a renowned science communicator in addition to being a leading scientist, and currently serves as a NIST Fellow and a University of Maryland Distinguished University Professor.

❤️ Shell Virtual Open House
Friday, September 25th @ 5:00pm - 10:00pm
Are you working on a venture or interested in working on one? Do you enjoy making cool things while meeting motivated, creative people?
At Startup Shell you’ll experience:
A community: We hang out in the space often! We host talks/workshops, collaborate on projects, and cultivate lasting connections at events like retreats and celebrations.
An incubator: A community of over 130 ventures with a combined valuation of over $60 million that can provide your venture with resources like mentorship, legal advice, talent, discounts on services, and a strong network of alumni
A workspace: 24/7 access to our coworking space. (For now Virtual, but we are moving to a new space soon!)
Check out Startup Shell's Directory to see the awesome things our members are working on.
Open House is a great opportunity to learn more about the Shell, the application process, and to chat with directors and current members.
Applications open Monday, September 21st.
Yeah yeah, technically it's not in September... But we are just too excited not to share again.
