MANHATTAN, N.Y. - Sept. 22, 2014 - PRLog -- The New York City arm of 3 Day Startup (“3DS NYC”), a nonprofit organization teaching entrepreneurial skills to students and entrepreneurs, announced their partnership today with Marymount Manhattan College November 7-9. The program will start at 6:00 p.m Friday, November 7 and end at 8 p.m on Sunday, November 9. Marymount Manhattan College is located at 221 E. 71st, New York, NY 10021.

“Marymount Manhattan College is shaping up to be an outstanding partner in the entrepreneurial skill building space and we are glad to add them as one of our fall programs this year” said Desiree Frieson, lead organizer of 3DS NYC. “If we can teach budding entrepreneurs how to code, why can’t we teach them the ABC’s of startup culture, conducting market viability testing, wireframing and prototyping, and how to make decisions in a collaborative setting. These skills are teachable and will serve students greatly in the future.”

3 Day Startup has been teaching entrepreneurial skill building since 2009. It expanded internationally in 2011 and has been building on the program’s success in targeted verticals such as the performing arts and within cemented corporate cultures. The Marymount Manhattan College and 3 Day Startup NYC partnership is open to all students across all majors within the college.

“I am thrilled that Marymount Manhattan students will benefit from experienced entrepreneurs,” said Vandana Rao, Professor of Business Management and Chair of the Division of Business at Marymount Manhattan College. “This is a great opportunity for Marymount Manhattan students to express their creative ideas and prepare business plans. They will also have a chance to improve upon their business plans as they interact with practicing entrepreneurs following the event via feedback and potential internships. We believe in the spirit of collaboration with other community members, and this partnership provides an excellent experiential learning opportunity for our students.”

The 3DS NYC and Marymount Manhattan College partnership will teach 40 students how to create ideas they are passionate about, research market challenges and opportunities, build a pitch presentation, and demonstrate their business model to experienced venture capitalists and angel investors.

If media personnel would like to register for the final pitch night on Sunday, November 9, please email Desiree Frieson at nyc@3daystartup.org and John Mackin at jmackin@mmm.edu. For more information, visit nyc.3daystartup.org. (http://nyc.3daystartup.org/)
