3 Day Startup comes to Georgia Southern

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Could the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs be current Georgia Southern student?

Teams of students took part in 3 Day Startup over the weekend. Facilitators took students through the process of creating a business idea and getting it ready to launch.

"We take 17 and 18 year olds who had no experience with this and work with them to get them familiar with how to start a business," explained facilitator Saaket Dubey. 

The ideas ranged from cloud services to phone apps. Each team presented their idea to a group of local business leaders, who in turn asked questions and offered their take on the plan.

"Often, it isn't as much about the idea as it is the execution and the team," Dubey added.

3DS has hosted more than 70 such workshops at universities across four continents.
