Program Manager

The experience of entrepreneurship unlocks human potential in powerful and unique ways. Our students tell us that starting a company–an act of creation charged with hope, promise and potential–transforms both the budding entrepreneur and the people their new venture serves. For students, the practice of entrepreneurship instills confidence, motivation, and hustle. For communities, entrepreneurship grows economies, creates jobs, and brings people together to solve problems.

Over the last seven years, 7,000 students at 60 universities, colleges, and high schools have learned entrepreneurship the 3 Day Startup way: discovering customers and validating markets, iterating, prototyping, and learning-by-doing. In the years to come, we will increase the scale and scope of experiential entrepreneurship education even further.

This adventure will take you to all corners of the earth where you will meet amazing current and future entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors. You will gain first-hand experience with numerous startup opportunities, new technologies and experiments testing the limits of caffeinated entrepreneurs.
