Fordham Invites Entrepreneurs to Start a Company Over the Weekend
Take a shot at pitching your best business idea: The Fordham Foundry's 3 Day Startup, happening this weekend in the Bronx, is a program seeking to create a viable company in just three days. The event, which begins this Friday, Jan. 17 at 5 p.m. launches Friday evening with a series of brainstorming sessions to pick the best six pitches among entrants.
Over the course of the weekend, those six chosen will create a prototype by Sunday night and hopefully build enough momentum among a network of motivated people to sustain the company beyond the weekend. Startup support over the weekend will be provided by the Fordham Foundry.
Students, business owners or anyone with a strong entrepreneurial drive are encouraged to apply. 3 Day Startup is a social and business experiment to see just how much a group of passionate people can accomplish over the course of 60 hours.
3 Day Startup will take place on: Friday, Jan. 17 at 5 p.m. to Sunday, Jan. 19 at 10 p.m. Fordham Foundry, 400 E. Fordham Road, 7th floor, Bronx, New York 10458
