SPECIAL STUDENT EVENT: 3 Day Startup NAIT* October 16 - 18
Reminder: 3DS NAIT is open to diploma, degree, and trade students/alumni of all years, majors, and experience levels. Students from all post-secondaries are welcome to apply! Application required; closes October 5, 2015.
October 16 - 18, 2015. Presented by NewVenture at NAIT.

3 Day Startup is a 72-hour learning-by-doing campus workshop that teaches entrepreneurial skills in an extreme hands-on environment. The idea is simple: start a company over the course of three days. 

WHAT HAPPENS AT A 3DS PROGRAM?

Bootcamp Information Session (October 8th): Participating students meet, are 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.  

3DS NAIT is open to diploma, degree, and trade students/alumni of all years, majors, and experience levels. Students from all post-secondaries are welcome to apply! Application required; closes October 5, 2015. 

For questions about the NAIT program, please email our lead organizer Robin Mazumder at NewVenture@nait.ca
