Virtual Foundations Program

Breathe life into your business ideas from the comfort of your home

3 Day Startup is proud to officially offer the Foundations entrepreneurial experience directly to individuals. The 3DS virtual Foundations entrepreneur experience will allow you to start creating your business from the comfort of your home.

Join a 3 day virtual cohort with other early stage entrepreneurs to collaborate on business ideas, rapid prototype, network with mentors and industry professionals and build the foundations of an early stage startup.


We have been developing our curriculum across 12 years, at over 500 programs, in over 200 universities, companies, and government embassies. Over that time, our network of student entrepreneurs and mentors has grown to more 12,000 strong worldwide. 

Using the data collected from each of these programs, we have created a structure that activates the entrepreneurial potential of early stage to newfound entrepreneurs and helps them go from early-stage idea to viable venture in three days.

All disciplines, backgrounds, and levels of entrepreneurship are welcome but program acceptances are based on applications for each virtual cohort.

What Students and Faculty are Saying:
Eunice Park
Student, UT Austin

I don’t know what kind of magic they use, but the program staff is amazing. The program went very smoothly, despite being entirely virtual, and they are the most supportive and kindest people I have ever encountered. They shifted my perspectives on entrepreneurship and helped me improve my character and skills.

I really enjoyed the three-day virtual 3DS event. Thank you for including me. I was very impressed by how smoothly everything went, and you would never have known this was your first all-virtual program. You have a top team who are all very skilled and clear communicators while also making everything fun! The training you are delivering is top-notch and our UT Austin students were very fortunate to have participated in such a high-quality event!

Apply to an upcoming virtual program now!

Your entrepreneurial journey is waiting.
