3 Day Startup is hitting the road to bring a little Austin entrepreneurship to Austria! Join us in Vienna and Graz for our signature 3DS Foundations program, alumni networking events, and office hours to further strengthen bridges of innovation between the U.S. and Austria.



Everyone is invited to attend the Austria to Austin Roadshow! In April 2019, 3DS team members will travel to Vienna and Graz to meet with ATA alumni, participants, partners, and interested students. The Roadshow will be centered on the theme of “Ecosystem Development,” with sessions exploring how a community mindset can help enhance sustainability and inclusivity in an entrepreneurship ecosystem. These events will bring together Austrian entrepreneurs of all stages to share ideas, network, and establish lasting connections.
