3DS Austin recently hosted it’s 11th program in October. Our friends from UPG Video came out to document the special weekend. Check out the short to get a feel of what hands-on entrepreneurship education really means.
3 Day Startup is an entrepreneurship education program designed for university students with an emphasis on learning by doing. 3 Day Startup’s mission is to kick-start new student-run companies and build entrepreneurial capabilities in students and their university communities.
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.
100 programs on 5 continents have launched 54 companies receiving $18 million in funding. 27 companies from 3DS have been accepted to accelerators such as Y Combinator, TechStars, 500 Startups, and Capital Factory.
