3 Day Startup is a global non-profit organization that produces living entrepreneurship laboratories, which equip participants with the tools and exposure they need to start a successful company. Participants from diverse industry and experience backgrounds work with mentors through the intensive three-day programs to develop the group’s strongest startup ideas and pitch their prototypes to a panel of investors.
To date, 3DS alumni have launched over 71 tech and social enterprise companies (http://3daystartup.org/
For 3DS NYC, the spring 2014 program is especially exciting. The Howard Hughes Corporation has donated a versatile space for the weekend event, which will accommodate both the preparation days and the culminating Sunday evening pitch session. Phillip St. Pierre, General Manager of the South Street Seaport says of the partnership, “We are extremely excited to be hosting 3 Day Startup NYC. The Howard Hughes Corporation shares and applauds their commitment to innovation, the entrepreneurial spirit, and honest feedback.”
Now in its third year, 3DS NYC was also able to attract a number of noteworthy startup business mentors to its program, including Nir Markus, founder of the mobile based English learning application OKPanda (http://www.crunchbase.com/
The potential investors who have signed on to hear the final presentations further raise the stakes for the participants. High Peak Ventures, Bain & Company, FinTech Collective and CoVenture are among the firms that will be represented at Sunday evening’s program.
