What is 3DS?
3DS is a weekend long event that will bring in students from all backgrounds in order to learn the basics of entrepreneurship. Over the weekend you will be placed in teams that help each student learn the factors that play in to starting a business.
Each student group will focus on a new or existing business idea and apply analytical techniques to visually examine the business potential from multiple dimensions. The program is intended for students who want to experience the excitement of assessing the potential of a new business idea and market opportunity.

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