3 Day Startup is a 72-hour learning-by-doing campus workshop that teaches entrepreneurial skills to university students in an extreme hands-on environment.

It is an international non-profit organisation that teaches university students how to start a company over the course of a weekend. In collaboration with the University of Texas, 3 Day Startup is available to students of SETsquared partnered universities – Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton, and Surrey.

The event follows on from the successful British launch at the University of Bristol in 2016, and is parented by the international 3 Day Startup organisation which has helped launch companies such as Timehop and Adtuitive.

Participants will get to connect with talented undergraduates and postgraduates from all different backgrounds, create something from the ground up and learn about what it takes to found a company. Participants do not need startup ideas at arrival – the bootcamp and preliminary learning of entrepreneurship will be conducted by an experienced facilitator to draw all participants up to speed.

The primary remit of the event will be focused on developing a prototype and creating the foundations for each startup to successfully progress past the concluding point of the three days.

Ten successful representatives will be chosen from each university. There are no required subject disciplines and each successful applicant will receive fully inclusive accommodation.

If successful, students will attend a short interview at their home university and successful applicants will then be notified.

Applications close on Friday 22nd September 2017.
