3 Day Startup is How Students Get Started

3 Day Startup was founded in 2008 at The University of Texas at Austin. Originally a student organization, 3 Day Startup is now a a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The program has spread to other schools in North America, Europe, South America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

3 Day Startup’s mission is to kick-start new student-run companies and build entrepreneurial capabilities in students and their university communities. We rent work space for 3 full days, recruit 45 student participants from a wide range of backgrounds, cater food and drinks, and bring in top-notch entrepreneurs and investors. The participants pick the best ideas for startups during the Day 1 brainstorming session and deliver prototypes and investor pitches on the final night.
