3 Day Startup

40 entrepreneurs, 3 days, and your tech startups

3 Day Startup is an entrepreneurship education program designed for university students with an emphasis on learning by doing. The idea is to start tech companies over the course of three days.

Over the years, over 100 3DS programs in the US and internationally have given rise to 54 companies receiving $18 million in funding. 27 companies from 3DS have been accepted to accelerators such as Y Combinator, Tech Stars, 500 Startups, and Dreamit Ventures.

Get kicked out of the building and talk to customers

Getting to know your customer is a key part of building a business that solves a real customer problem. Talking with individuals and companies that represent your customer base is an integral part of the 3 Day Startup experience.

Pitches and prototypes to investors and entrepreneurs

Final pitches of 3 Day Startup is when students show the fruits of their labor: teams deliver an investor pitch and a prototype demonstration to an esteemed panel of notable investors, entrepreneurs, and professors.
