Cornell 3 Day Startup 

The mission of 3 Day Startup is to build entrepreneurial capabilities and cultures on university campuses.

Cornell Software Entrepreneurship & Startup Engineering (SENSE)

We are a group of students who dream of founding successful software companies one day. Running a startup company requires a plethora of knowledge and experience, but what we learn from classes and textbooks are often limited. That is why we gather to foster our understanding of entrepreneurship and to maximize opportunities to interact with software entrepreneurs who have already made their first steps toward their ultimate goal: establishing sustainable businesses in the quickly shifting software industry.
