4 Day Founder was created to inspire a community of future founders to solve problems they're passionate about and make their mark. Whether you're majoring in Engineering, Creative Writing, Biology, Architecture, or Accounting, every industry has its problems. As entrepreneurs, your role is to create the solutions.
During 4 Day Founder you'll get to play Founder for a weekend. Learn how to pick a viable startup idea, how to build a business model, and how to create a persuasive pitch. In just 4 days, your team will bring an idea to life.
We want to build a startup ecosystem of future BIPOC founders. Our mission is to support racial equity in entrepreneurship by sharing resources from the #1 undergrad entrepreneurship program, the UH Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship, with BIPOC college students across the nation and beyond.
