3DS Event Goals
The event is designed with two specific goals in mind: kick-start new student-run companies and build entrepreneurial capabilities in students and their university communities.
For students, 3-Day Startup is an intensely fun way to learn about startups and executing on business ideas by cramming semesters’ worth of learning into three days. You connect with cofounders, make friends, drink too much caffeine, andlearn by doing. If you are excited by this idea,apply now.
For administrators and professors, 3-Day Startup is an academic program designed to teach entrepreneurial skills in an extreme hands- on environment. The 3DS program creates a living entrepreneurship laboratory on university campuses by bringing together students ranging from freshmen to freshly-minted PhDs with diverse backgrounds, including computer science, business, engineering, law, design, communications and others. Participants gain experience in cross- disciplinary collaboration, brainstorming and ideation, and group productivity, including ad-hoc leadership and decision-making under severe time constraints. The resulting experience is just like that of working with a budding startup company. The 2000+ 3DS alumni from 40 events over the last four years have started 28 technology companies that have collectively raised over $8 million in investment capital.
For sponsors, 3-Day Startup is a way to reach desirable audiences and encourage a tested, proven, and exciting model for entrepreneurship education. If you are interested in sponsoring 3-Day Startup, learn morehere.
