3 Day Startup

November 10 - November 12

3 Day Startup

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 are now closed for this event. 

If you missed out then keep an eye open for the next one in March 2018. 

If that's too far away then join us for our Bootcamp!
