3 Day Startup Program

3 Day Startup
Mentors & Panelists


The mission of 3 Day Startup is to build entrepreneurial capabilities and cultures on university campuses. We do this by helping teams at universities around the globe organize 3DS programs that help turn students into entrepreneurs, and connect those students with a powerful network of mentors, investors and talent.

Over one weekend, participants will create:

  • business models
  • contact with potential customers
  • prototypes
  • lasting professional and personal relationships

The 3DS University of Houston program is a locally organized 3 Day Startup and was founded by Hesam Panahi. Email the 3DS University of Houston team here: The team is comprised of these volunteers:
