About 3 Day Startup
Founded by a diverse group of students that saw unexpressed potential for startups in higher education, the 3 Day Startup program debuted at the University of Texas at Austin in 2008.
The student organization incorporated as a nonprofit in 2010 and began expanding this immersive, short-format model to higher learning institutions across the globe.
Now, 3 Day Startup (“3DS”) is an international 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that teaches emerging leaders to leverage entrepreneurial thinking and experience inclusive innovation. Based on each country and community’s needs and opportunities, 3DS tailors their recruitment and training curriculum to ensure equitable learning opportunities for emerging leaders.
Over the past 12 years, 3DS programs have developed entrepreneurial capabilities in more than 16,000 young leaders worldwide, resulting in hundreds of companies, $217 million raised by program alumni and alumni accepted into top-tier global startup accelerator programs like Y-Combinator and Techstars. Our programs and partnerships support student leaders and new majority entrepreneurs in creating value and driving impact in their local ecosystems through new business development, job creation, civic engagement, and social innovation.
South Australians ages 18-29 living in the Adelaide area who are interested in learning more about entrepreneurship, innovation, and the Austin business and cultural scene are encouraged to apply. University enrollment not required.
Our Adelaide Partners help recruit participants for the Initiative and help develop the real-world problem sets that our innovators will work on.
