The mixer will bring together the different stakeholders involved in the university's and the region's innovation ecosystem. The events intend to foster interdisciplinary collaboration among students as they work in entrepreneurial projects. It will also be a good opportunity for students to learn about the resources and mentorship available at tech to get hand on experiences on innovation.
3 Day Startup (3DS) offers Texas Tech University students an intensive 72-hour immersion into how to start a new business. Students learn the practice of entrepreneurship, how to form cross-disciplinary teams around a business idea, how to evaluate a potential market for their idea or product, how to create a business plan and how to pitch their idea to potential investors. The weekend ends with a pitch session where each team presents its business concept to a panel composed of faculty and business leaders.
