3DayStartup (3DS) is coming to Atlanta and they are looking for creative and entrepreneurial minded students. The program accepts up to 45 students from a wide variety of backgrounds to present their best ideas for a startup and to ultimately start a company over the course of only three days. The theme is social entrepreneurship and it is hosted by the Startup Exchange and Enterprise2Empower at Georgia Tech, in association with EEVM at Emory and the Startup Exchange at GSU. The result is an experience that challenges participants to actually innovate, build and launch. The program also provides the opportunity to work and network with like-minded people, with the possibility of meeting a potential cofounder(s) to develop an idea into a full-fledged business. 3DS is unique in its focus on university students, and its track record of cultivating more than one funded, incubated or revenue-generating startup per event.
When: November 21st- 23rd
Where: Opportunity Hub
