In a nutshell
Looking for strong & committed founding teams, solving real and difficult problems, in big and growing markets.
Early-stage: concept, pre-seed, seed.
What are we looking for?
All. Enterprise SaaS, Fintech, Healthcare, E-commerce, Deep- tech, Edu-tech, Prop-tech, Web3 and others.
Focus on Greece and SE Europe, but any geo is welcome, as long as the company has a branch/subsidiary in Greece.
We are honest and fully transparent in our communication with founders, investors, and other stakeholders.
'This is our baby' mindset. We own up and get things done. No excuses.
What do we stand for?
We put effort to develop our team, founders, and angel investors. Their success is our success.
We prioritize ruthlessly to maximize results for our investors, founders, and the tech ecosystem.
We believe that startups have transformative potential for the people that create them, the people that work at them, the people that invest in them, and the people that use their products. We want to give the first two groups of people the knowledge and opportunity to reach this potential.
Even more, we want to give anyone, who is smart, ambitious, and hard-working enough and regardless of their socioeconomic status, background, pedigree, and gender, the opportunity to reach this potential by starting up. That is why we started the DayOne acceleration program.
