3 Day Start Up Weekend


3DS, 3 Day Start-Up, is an enterprise boot-camp that develops entrepreneurial ideas from concept to pitch over the course of 72 hours. Under the guidance of mentors and expert speakers, students get the chance to refine and test their own idea or work in a team on someone else’s.  The weekend will culminate in a final public pitching event to a judging panel of industry executives.

We rent work space for 3 full days – Central Working 69-89 Mile End Road – and recruit 60 students from across London Universities with a wide range of backgrounds, and invite entrepreneurs and investors to give support.  Free food and coffee will also be provided for the duration of the weekend to keep you going.

On the Friday evening, students will pick the best ideas for start-ups during the brainstorming session, and release a minimal prototype by the evening of day 3. The goal is to build enough momentum among a network of motivated people to sustain the company beyond day 3.

3DS is an American organisation who have delivered 100+ programmes in Universities such as Harvard, Yale and Brown, on 5 continents and have given rise to 56 companies receiving $19 million in funding. 33 companies from 3DS have been accepted to top accelerators such as Y Combinator, TechStars, and 500 Start-ups.

We are looking for passionate students, with drive, who are looking to develop valuable skills for their CV. We are looking for strong candidates that can fill the following roles:

  • Software engineer
  • Business (finance, marketing, business development)
  • Graphic design
  • Advertising, PR
  • Legal
  • Other: wildcards, raw passion

Among the businesses last year we had: a social enterprise, a professional networking app and an online platform for modest clothing.
