Students from ACBSP Member Campuses Invited to Attend 3-Day Startup in Bogotá this February

Universidad del Rosario to Award 10 Scholarships

The School of Business at Universidad del Rosario in Bogotá, Colombia, invites students from around the world to attend a 3-Day Startup! this February 20-22, 2019.


The idea of 3-Day Startup is simple: Start a technology company over the course of three days.

The 3-Day Startup is an international academic program that teaches entrepreneurial skills through a model of “learning by doing” and helps students to start a venture in three days. Approximately 40 students will participate from different disciplines and universities who will work in teams to create a solution focused on sustainability, based on their own business ideas, under the supervision of mentors. By the end of the third day, the students will present their ideas with the “Pitch Elevator” methodology and receive feedback from a panel of jury.

Universidad del Rosario rents work-space for an entire weekend, recruits 40 students with a wide range of backgrounds, caters food and drinks, and invites top-notch entrepreneurs and investors. The 3-Day Startup is a social and business experiment to see how much a group of passionate people can accomplish over the course of 60 hours.

Learn how students, faculty/staff, and companies use 3-Day Startup for entrepreneurship and innovation.

“This is a great experience for you,” said Javier Hernandez, Master Marketing Student from Guatemala, who attended the September 2018 workshop. “I am from Guatemala. If you are from another country, please come here and live this great experience.”

“We know many people with great ideas who fail to execute on them for a variety of reasons: lack of time or money, no access to the right people, or not enough confidence to make the plunge. We provide all of the resources to bring an idea to life with the help of 39 other highly skilled and motivated individuals,” said a Universidad del Rosario event organizer.

Universidad del Rosario will award 10 scholarships to students of ACBSP member schools who wish to attend. Visit to apply.
