Seventh Annual 3 Day Startup (March 23-25, 2018)

Do You Have The Next Big Idea?

Over the past six years, students across Brandeis University have launched 20 startups in more than 200 hours of non-stop entrepreneurship through our 3 Day Startup Challenge (3DS). Will your idea be next?

The 3 Day Startup (3DS) program aims to create a living entrepreneurship laboratory on university campuses by bringing together students with diverse backgrounds ranging from freshmen to freshly-minted PhDs. Participants gain experience in cross-disciplinary collaboration, brainstorming and ideation, and group productivity, including ad-hoc leadership under severe time constraints. They also become a proud partner of a startup, ready to be launched at the end of the event. To add to this, participants gain tremendous opportunities to network with mentors who are thought-leaders and experts in the field of entrepreneurship.

We are proud to partner with MassChallenge again this year to select one team to advance into the second round of the MassChallenge accelerator program.

New this year:

  • We are teaming up with the Brandeis MakerLab to provide participants with the opportunity to further develop their ideas with 3D printing and graphic design opportunities!

  • Teams will have the opportunity to win up to $1,500 in startup costs (in-kind)!

Held in conjunction with:
