As a student I always like to know what’s happening on campus and take advantage of any new opportunities. Putting myself in a new environment, with new people is by no doubt challenging but always rewarding in the end. So when I found out that 3 Day Startup was going to run their campus program at JCU, I was beyond thrilled to get in on the action. For those of you who don’t know, 3DS is a campus program that’s designed specifically to teach university students essential entrepreneurial skills.
During the intensive three days I learned so many new things! The 3DS team taught us how to pitch our ideas and essentially go through all the processes involved in creating a startup. It was a wonderful and challenging learning experience altogether. I got to meet some new interesting people, enjoy some awesome food, and just learn in a non-competitive environment. Students from different majors worked together in teams and this brought a different dynamic to how problems were approached.
No better time than now to study in Townsville. Advance Queensland and Innovation NQ are here facilitating the growth of ideas in this regional area where its most needed, and experiences like these are great for students. With that, I hope the one thing you take from this blog post is to, get involved! Seek out what’s happening and just give it a go!
