3 Day Start Up

Is an internationally-renowned entrepreneurship program focused on learning by doing. The goal of the weekend-long program is to develop sustainable businesses in three days. 3 Day Startup (3DS) participants brainstorm ideas, conduct market validation, engage in cross-sector collaboration, devise business models, build prototypes and pitch investors and successful entrepreneurs. The scope and value of the program results in an experience that challenges participants to actually innovate, build and launch successful companies. 3DS has a strong track record of success with launching 54 companies who have collectively raised $ 18 million in funding. Twenty-seven companies from 3DS have been accepted to prestigious accelerators, such as Y Combinator, TechStars and 500 Startups.
