3 Day Startup March 2018

Our first 3 Day Startup of the year is now open for applications!

This unique, high energy, fun event has proved so popular the LAUNCH.ed team had to run two a year!

What happens at 3 Day Startup?

50 plus students come along to this three day event taking place over the weekend. All students and recent graduates from the University of Edinburgh are encouraged to apply.

Come with, or without a business or social enterprise idea. Those with ideas pitch them to the group, the best six to eight are put through to the voting stage. You then choose the idea you want to work on. Simple!

Over the rest of the weekend the LAUNCH.ed team, mentors and advisors will help you through the start-up process. We’ll go through brainstorming, the lean canvas model, customer discovery, how to pitch and even prototyping. To make this happen we need 3DS-ers from all courses and year groups. Don’t be put off if you don’t have a business background!

You’ll have the chance to speak to our mentors from the industry. The final pitches will be presented on the Sunday afternoon. Invite family and friends to show them the results of your hard work. We’ll celebrate together with drinks and canapés.

Meet new, like-minded people, learn new skills and get some great entries onto your CV!
