COO & Cofounder, na Vou me Casei!

Loved the keynote about going from a student at 3DS to an acquisition by Google. Further I have met so many great people, particularly from Austin’s startup ecosystem.

What is the Global Roundup?
The Global Roundup is a conference for 3 Day Startup participants, organizers, facilitators, mentors, and panelists, as well as the general public. It’s an opportunity to meet other inspired, brilliant people and take your startup to the next level.
I've never participated in 3 Day Startup. Can I still attend?
Absolutely. We encourage all aspiring entrepreneurs to join the Global Roundup. 
Is it possible to have my trip subsidized?
Possibly. Many universities have funding available for student entrepreneurs to attend startup conferences and pitch competitions. Contact us for more details.
Where should I stay?

There are lots of great options in the heart of downtown Austin, but you’ll want to book your bed as soon as you can. Some suggestions:



  • Cheap: Firehouse youth hostel is right across the street. Native hostel is also within walking distance.
  • Moderate: Airbnb has great rooms around Austin. You can even stay in an old, vintage airstream.
  • Fancy: The Hilton and Driskill are nearby, and the Omni is in the same building as the conference.
Are tickets refundable?
Tickets are not refundable, but you can transfer them to someone else.
