About 3 Day Startup

3 Day Startup (“3DS”) is an international 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Austin, Texas supporting early stage entrepreneurs on their journey from idea to building successful businesses for profit and impact. 3DS tailors their recruitment and training curriculum to ensure equitable learning opportunities for underrepresented founders.  Over the past 12 years, 3DS programs have developed entrepreneurial capabilities in more than 16,800 young leaders worldwide, resulting in hundreds of companies, $217 million raised by program alumni, and alumni accepted into top-tier global startup accelerator programs like Y-Combinator and Techstars.
We understand the complexities of executing ideas and the specific challenges faced by underrepresented groups (BIPOC, women, LGBTQ, neuro-diverse, disabled, etc.). Our global network supports these founders by providing access to training, mentoring, community, customers, and capital.
