3 Day Startup x Austin x Fall 13

Get Kicked Out of the Building and Talk to Customers

Getting to know your customer is a key part of building a business that solves a real customer problem. Talking with individuals and companies that represent your customer base is an integral part of the 3 Day Startup experience.

41 programs in the US, Europe, Asia, and South America have given rise to 35 companies receiving $15 million in funding. 18 companies from 3DS have been accepted to accelerators such as Y Combinator, Tech Stars, Capital Factory, and Dreamit Ventures.

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.

Who?

Passionate students with an entrepreneurial drive, including Computer Science (PhD, MS, undergraduate), MBAs, law students, graphic designers, PR, business undergraduates, etc. We are looking for strong candidates that can fill the following roles:

Software Engineer

Business (Finance, Marketing, Biz Dev)

Graphic Design (Web, Print)

Other: Wildcards, Raw Passion

When?

3 Day Startup Austin, Fall 2013

When: Friday, October 18, 2013 – Sunday, October 20, 2013

Where?

Austin Technology Incubator

3925 West Braker Lane

Austin, Texas 78759

Why?

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.
