3 Day Startup is an entrepreneurship education program designed for university students with an emphasis on learning by doing. The idea is simple: start tech companies over the course of three days.
Sunday night 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.
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.
70 programs on 4 continents have launched 41 companies receiving $10.5 million in funding. 21 companies from 3DS have been accepted to accelerators such as Y Combinator, TechStars, 500 Startups, and Capital Factory.
