Few words from previous Mentors and Judges on their 3 Day Startup experience at the Texas State University:

3DS Presentations
  • Absolutely thrilled to be mentoring my first 3-Day Startup weekend with Texas State University students and so fun to be on campus! Love seeing entrepreneur education and innovation brainstorming happening live! -Clair England, Mentor/Judge

  • I just had the opportunity to discuss my business model with the CEO of Greenling thanks to the connections made this past weekend. I am excited to continue forward with Pure a Clean Products. This newfound drive, belief in myself, and of course the networking opportunities would not have been possible without 3 Day Start-Up, and I cannot thank everybody enough for making it happen. -Maureen Pafumi, 3DS Judge

  • Privileged to have been a mentor at the Three Day Startup (3DS) event at the Texas State this past weekend. About 60 great students, plenty of interesting business concepts generated, developed, and pitched (mini-Shark Tank at the end), and a work space buzzing with intense energy for three days. Lots learned by everyone involved and I suspect that most left invigorated. I know I did. -Kim Smith, 3DS Mentor
