TMAC Calendar of Events
3 Day Startup (3DS) is an intensive learning-by-doing workshop that teaches entrepreneurial skills in an extreme hands-on environment.
Aspiring entrepreneurs from across the Southwest are invited to help solve the world’s biggest, messiest problems in clean energy, water, transportation/mobility, food, and waste/re-use.
3DS is open to grad and undergrad students of all years, majors, and experience levels, as well as to community members.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A 3DS PROGRAM?
- 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 the next day.
- Customer discovery (teams exit the building or hit the phones and talk to potential customers), structured mentorship, and feedback sessions with a heavy emphasis on business model generation.
- Final pitches in front of a panel of distinguished entrepreneurs, experts, and investors.
Time and quality are the two most important measures in improving any company’s production and profit performance. Lean Six Sigma explains how to impact your company’s performance in each, by combining the strength of today’s two most important initiatives –Lean Production and Six Sigma—into one integrated program.
