Who should join the Day One Fellowship?
The Day One Fellowship is a community and mentorship program designed for early-stage founders, CEOs, and entrepreneurs who want to tap into the support and advice of a tight-knit peer group. Whether it's help thinking through and outlining your fundraising strategy, your go to market plan, how you'll manage your burn over the next few quarters, or just how to find your next customer, the community in Day One has your back and is here to help.
Day One Fellows are both venture backed founders and bootstrappers. Some Day One Fellows have hundreds of thousands in revenue, others are just launching their first MVP.
What typifies all Day One Fellows is a willingness to learn, grow, be helpful and give, knowing that building relationships and helping others is the key to longterm growth.
How much does the Day One Fellowship cost?
The Day One Fellowship costs $2,999, and includes the three month cohort-based program and lifetime access to the Day One community and resources. We offer payment plans to spread the cost over 3 monthly payments.
What does a typical week look like?
A typical week in the Day One Fellowship during your first month in the program includes 3-4 live sessions, scheduled from Tuesday to Thursday, ranging from workshops, expert AMAs, community sessions and mentor office hours. On top of that, you'll have 1:1 coaching sessions at days/times that work for your schedule, and we highly encourage you to connect and collaborate with your peers in 1:1 sessions you set up for yourself.
After the first month, the schedule slows down and you'll attend weekly Mastermind sessions (small groups of 6-8 that are curated to your stage or industry, facilitated and guided for maximum effectiveness).
After 90 days, you'll have the option to continue on in your Mastermind group. And even if you opt not to continue, you'll have lifetime access to the Day One community and resources, so any given week could look like ongoing networking, attending community calls, and leveraging tools and resources to build your business.
Is the Fellowship held virtually?
Yes, we’ve designed everything in Day One to be virtual. This allows us to reach entrepreneurs wherever they are in the world.
We do love to host in person gatherings and informal events in cities where we have critical mass, and we always encourage Fellows to meet up whenever possible.
Can I join if I have a full time job?
Yes, of course! Many Day One Fellows work full-time or have freelancing and part time jobs as they build their startup.
What is the time commitment?
To get the most out of the Fellowship, we recommend you commit at least 4-5 hours per week during the first month of the program to live sessions and networking/connecting with your peers, then 1-2 hours per week for the next 2 months. During the first month, there will be 3-4 hours of live sessions each week. That drops to just 1 hour of live sessions for the next 2 months. Almost all live session are scheduled between 11am-2pm ET. All sessions are recorded if you miss anything.
