3 Day Startup Shows Off Startups From 80+ UT Students

One of the reasons that Austin is such a hotbed for startup activity is UT Austin, which is a source of talent, ideas, and technology for the local community. Helping to spur even more startups and entrepreneurs, 3 Day Startup says it is showing off its final, pitch competition for its latest event at UT Austin on Sunday. The event lets students--who have already gone out and tested and built a company in only three days--get judged by such local luminiaries as Josh Baer of Capital Factory, Steve Papermaster of Powershift Group, Zoe Schlag of UnLtd USA, and others. 3 Day Startup--which was founded in 2008 in Austin--has been running events nationwide to help educate students on the basics of startups and entrepreneurship.
