No one is going to steal your stupid startup idea.
Ideas are great, but execution matters more. If you romanticize your idea for a business, isolate yourself from your eventual customers, and believe people will give a damn just because you built something you thought is cool… 6 months in, when you launch, no one is going to care.
Today, I’m sitting with Cam Houser, CEO of 3 Day Startup, to talk about his journey entrepreneurship, teaching college students to build companies in an extreme hands-on environment, advising governments on their university entrepreneurship ecosystems, and
3 Day Startup has held its program more than 300 programs in 30+ countries, alumni have raised in excess of $85M as well as been accepted to prestigious accelerator programs such as Techstars and Y Combinator.
We also have Shayna Dunitz talking about each day of the program as she and I – well, mostly Shayna – run a 3 Day Program at Tufts University in Boston. Shayna is a Program Manager for 3 Day Startup, and is also a co-founder of the experience fund, a nonprofit that gives grants to students to help cover the costs associated with completing unpaid internship.
