Upcoming: 3-Day Startup (Nov. 15-17)
3-Day Startup at Cornell is an entrepreneurship weekend event designed for Cornell University students with an emphasis on learning by doing. The idea is simple: start tech companies over the course of three days. This year, 3DS@Cornell will be held from Friday, November 15th at 2PM to Sunday, November 17th 10PM.
Join us on Sunday, November 17th at 6 pm to see the 3DS@Cornell’13 participants’ final presentations.
What is 3 Day Startup?
The idea of 3 Day Startup is simple: start a technology company over the course of three days. We rent work space for an entire weekend, recruit 40 students with a wide range of backgrounds, cater food and drinks, invite top-notch entrepreneurs and investors, pick the best idea for a software startup during the Friday brainstorming session, and release a minimal prototype by Sunday night. The goal is to build enough momentum among a network of motivated people to sustain the company beyond the weekend.
Passionate students with an entrepreneurial drive, including Computer Science (PhD, MS, undergraduate), MBAs, law students, graphic designers, PR, business undergraduates, etc. We found strong candidates that fill the following roles:
- Software Engineer
- Business (Finance, Marketing, Biz Dev)
- Graphic Design (Web, Print)
- Advertising, PR
- Other: Wildcards, Raw Passion
2013: Friday, November 15, 2pm – Sunday, November 17, 10pm
3DS Final Pitches – Sunday – Sunday 11/17 @ 6:00pm – Sage Hall B05
The 3 Day Startup Final Pitches and Networking event will be a presentation of the startups and prototypes created during the 3 Day Startup (3DS) event. Each team will pitch their ideas to a panel of industry leaders and venture capitalists. The pitches will be followed by an opportunity to network with the 3DS participants and other attendees. Light snacks and drinks will be served.
Sage Hall Ramin Parlor, Cornell University, Ithaca NY
We know many people with great ideas, but they never pursue them for a variety of reasons: lack of time or money, no access to the right people, or not enough confidence to make the plunge. We provide all the resources for anyone to offer their idea and bring it to life with the help of 39 other highly skilled and motivated individuals.
We believe 3 Day Startup is a great way to get the community excited about entrepreneurship and to spend an intense weekend with creative people who want to actually bring an idea to life as opposed to sitting back and listening to YATAE (yet another talk about entrepreneurship). It’s also a social and business experiment to see how much a group of passionate people can accomplish over the course of 60 hours.
