Since 2012, over 60 University of Maryland startups have passed through the Startup Shell. The “coworking space” offers resources and a location for students to turn their ideas into reality.

One of these companies, Javazen, puts a spin on traditional coffee, offering an organic alternative from superfoods to provide more balanced energy. The startup will expand to about 1,000 stores by early next year.
