3 Day Startup is an entrepreneurship education program designed for university students with an emphasis on learning by doing. The idea is simple: start tech companies over the course of three days. The weekend is designed with two specific goals in mind: kick-start new student-run companies and build entrepreneurial capabilities in students and their university communities.
You connect with cofounders, make friends, drink too much caffeine, and learn by doing.
18 events on 4 continents have given rise to 16 companies receiving $4 million in funding. 7 companies from 3DS have been accepted to accelerators such as Y Combinator, 500 Startups, and Dreamit Ventures.
Students ranging from freshmen to freshly-minted PhDs, with diverse backgrounds, including computer science, business, engineering, law, digital design, communications and others.
