Mission Statement

3 Day Startup's mission is to activate entrepreneurial potential in students of all kinds through experiential education and a global entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Impact Statement

Since beginning in 2008, 3 Day Startup has provided hands-on entrepreneurial experience to over 11,000 students in 30 countries across 6 continents. Nearly 100 3DS alumni have gone on to launch startups raising over $85m in funding.

Needs Statement

All money raised through Amplify Austin will go first towards supporting a 3DS program in partnership with DivInc, Austin's first pre-accelerator for women- and minority-led startups. This program will give students and community members in the Austin area the opportunity to participate in our experiential 3-day program, meet successful entrepreneurs from the community, and learn how to start their own company.

"It's been a few days now since I attended 3DS at NAIT and I still can't help but think about it now and then; the event has had a lasting, positive and profound impact on me which I'm sure will not go away anytime soon... From start to finish, the learning never stopped!" - Jethray T, Edmonton, Canada

"Awesome experience. The missing link between real world entrepreneurialism and academia. Fun and high energy, I cant think of a better way to spend a weekend!" - Karyn B, Queensland, Australia
