What is the Global Roundup?
The Global Roundup is a conference for 3 Day Startup participants, organizers, facilitators, mentors, and panelists, as well as the general public. It’s an opportunity to meet other inspired, brilliant people and take your startup to the next level.
I've never participated in 3 Day Startup. Can I still attend?
Absolutely. While the Global Roundup was designed for past participants, organizers, mentors, and panelists, we do have non-3DS tickets available. Non-3DSers have blended in perfectly and made great connections at past Global Roundup conferences.
Is it possible to have my trip subsidized?
Possibly. Many universities have funding available for student entrepreneurs to attend startup conferences and pitch competitions. Contact us for more details.
Where should I stay?
There are lots of great options in the heart of downtown Austin, but you’ll want to book your bed as soon as you can. Some suggestions:

  • Cheap: Firehouse youth hostel is literally across the street.
  • Moderate: Airbnb has great rooms around Austin. You can even stay in an old, vintage airstream.
  • Pricey: The Hilton and Driskill are nearby, and the Omni is downstairs.
Are tickets refundable?
Tickets are not refundable, but you can transfer them to someone else.
