The companies, which include those offering a medical device, next-generation tractor, social media app and health care software, spent the first semester learning lean startup methods and conducting more than 100 customer interviews to determine the viability of their business ideas.

The remaining companies will spend the second semester generating revenue and focusing on launching their ideas, CSU said.

The Venture Accelerator is a program of the Institute for Entrepreneurship, part of CSU’s College of Business. To learn more about the program, click here.

Similar to a hackathon or startup weekend, 3 Day Startup will gather 40 students to learn entrepreneurship through hands-on experience of starting a company in just three days, CSU said.
