What It Is
3 Day Startup is an intensive business boot camp that helps entrepreneurs test their ideas and boost their ability to launch successful businesses faster, all in one weekend.

Who Should Participate
We’re looking primarily for Bronx-based entrepreneurs working in teams. Each person doesn’t have to be from the Bronx, but the majority of each team’s membership must be from the Bronx. Individuals without a team can apply but must be Bronx residents and be willing to work with other interested participants to form a team during the weekend. Anyone who meets that criteria, whether they’re at the idea stage or have an existing business, should apply. Please Note: Anyone participating must complete the online application below.

What It Costs
Nothing. Nada. Zero. There is no charge for 3 Day Startup thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A 3DS PROGRAM?

 

Bootcamp & infosession (1-2 weeks before program date): Participants meet, get introduced to key entrepreneurship principles, and learn best practices for maximizing the 3 Day Startup program experience.

Day 1: Participants arrive – with or without startup ideas – and a facilitator leads the group through dedicated brainstorming, preliminary pitches/feedback, and team selection modules. Some teams work late into the night and others prefer to rest up in preparation for day 2.

Day 2: Customer discovery (teams exit the building or hit the phones and talk to potential customers), structured mentorship, intermediate pitches and feedback sessions. Day 2 places heavy emphasis on business model generation.

Day 3: Continued execution (including pitch workshops) leading into final pitches/demos to an esteemed panel of mentors and investors.
