3 Day Startup

23rd March 2018 - 25th March 2018

Event Navigation

3 Day Startup is a 72-hour learning-by-doing campus workshop that teaches entrepreneurial skills to university students in an extreme hands-on environment.

All current students and recent graduates from the University of Edinburgh are encouraged to apply. From any school/course/year group. This is an early stage business idea/social enterprise event, therefore, you do not need a set idea to participate. All skills are welcomed – we need designers, coders, engineers, painters, marketers, you get it, ALL skills and passions!

 

WHAT HAPPENS AT A 3DS PROGRAM?

  • Day 1 – Friday: 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 – Saturday: Customer discovery (teams exit the building or hit the phones and talk to potential customers), structured mentorship, intermediate pitches and feedback sessions. Day 2 places heavy emphasis on business model generation.
  • Day 3 – Sunday: Continued execution (including pitch workshops) leading into final pitches/demos to an esteemed panel of mentors and investors.

Applications will open a few weeks before these dates.
