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.

It looks like you’ve missed all the fun! Get in touch with us to receive updates of when the next 3DS Georgia Tech will happen.

Better yet get in touch to launch the next 3 Day Startup!


Customer Discovery


Startups fail all the time because they’ve built a great product that no one wants. Learn how to have meaningful discussions with customers to prove that there’s a need for your company before you spend a dime developing products.

Product Development


On a ramen-noodle diet you’ve got to find the most efficient way to build your product and get it in the hands of customers. We’ll teach you all about lean product development and building your MVP (Minimum Viable Product).


Whether you’re pitching for funding, awareness, or looking for collaborators, we’ll show you how to rock the stage and reach your audience in a clear and meaningful way. It’s not just about slide decks, it’s about the message.

Bootcamp (1-2 weeks before program date): 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: 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: Continued execution (including pitch workshops) leading into final pitches/demos to an esteemed panel of mentors and investors.
