3 Day Startup (3DS) is honored to have been selected once again to lead the Austria to Austin Student Startup Exchange. Through the generous and increased support of the U.S. Embassy Vienna, 3DS will now be able to provide five additional Austrian university and Fachhochschule students with the opportunity to participate in the 2017 exchange.

“The Austria to Austin program implemented by 3DS was a stunning success last year and we look forward to 2017,” said U.S. Embassy Vienna Deputy Public Affairs Officer, Kellee Farmer. “Entrepreneurship is an American brand, and Austin is one of the most dynamic places to learn how we do it. Last year, the students returned from Austin ready to start a business, and looking to America for investment and partnership.”

Similarly to last year, the exchange will allow students to start early-stage companies and build innovation bridges between the U.S. and Austria. The students will also have the opportunity to attend the 3DS Global Roundup, 3DS’s annual conference that brings students and startup experts from all over the world together for a weekend of networking, keynote speakers, and shared experiences.

“We could not be more excited for the second edition of the Austria to Austin Student Startup Exchange,” said 3DS CEO, Cam Houser. “This program, which takes an immersive approach to engaging young Austrian leaders with Austin company founders, members of industry, universities, and government officials, is transformative. This is how you create leaders of the economies of the future.”
