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 and Asia.
The idea of 3 Day Startup is simple: start tech companies over the course of three days. We rent work space for an entire weekend, 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 Friday brainstorming session and deliver prototypes and investor pitches on Sunday night.
