Day One

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 Day One acceleration program.
