3 Day Startup (3DS) is a 72-hour campus workshop that teaches entrepreneurial skills to university students in an extreme hands-on environment.
What Happens at Our 3DS Program?
Bootcamp: Participating students meet, get introduced to key entrepreneurship principles, and learn best practices for maximizing the 3 Day Startup program experience.
Day 1: Participants arrive – with or without startup ideas – and a facilitator leads the group through dedicated brainstorming, preliminary pitches/feedback, and team selection modules. Some teams work late into the night and others prefer to rest up in preparation for day 2.
Day 2: Day 2 places heavy emphasis on business model generation. Teams focus on customer discovery (where they hit the streets –– or the phones –– and talk to potential customers), structured mentorship, intermediate pitches and feedback sessions.
Day 3: Continued execution (including pitch workshops) leading into final pitches/demos before a panel of mentors and investors.
This years' 3DS workshop took place from September 22-24th and was a great success thanks to the Reh Center for Entrepreneurship and the program instructors.
