Am I a fit for Day One?

Day One is designed for early-stage founders and entrepreneurs.

You might be in the idea stage, focused on talking to customers, building and testing early versions of your product, and planning how to fund your business and build your team. Or you could be in the traction or growth stages, where you have your first customers, your product is live, and you're continuously learning, building, growing, and perhaps preparing to raise capital.

You could be full time on your startup or still working a day job or freelancing - we've supported both very successfully. And you could be fully bootstrapped, or funded from angels or VCs.

Our approach to coaching and support, as well as our community, network and resources, are designed for founders in all of the scenarios above.

How much does Day One cost?

Day One costs $2,999 for the first 3 months of support, and includes lifetime access to the Day One community and resources.

We offer payment plans that spread the cost over 3 monthly payments.

Is Day One virtual?

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 founders in our community to meet up whenever possible.

What is the time commitment?

Each week you will have a 30 minute 1:1 with your co-pilot and a 1-hour mastermind session with your peer group of founders.

Outside of those two core sessions, we hold talks and office hour sessions with experienced founders and investors a few times each month.

To get the most out of Day One, we recommend you allocate ~2 hours per week and commit to joining the 1:1 and mastermind sessions, and allocating some time to take advantage of the connections, events and resources we make available to you.
