learn the fundamentals of growing your business

As an early-stage entrepreneur, you don’t have the luxury of hiring an outside growth agency or even a full time hire. Managing contractors without knowing the fundamentals is a slippery slope. In the Growth Track, you’ll learn how to take the reins and gain traction on your own terms.

about the growth track
Customer acquisition is one of the hardest challenges every entrepreneur faces. There are so many channels to test and the platforms are evolving every day. If you’re not a marketer, knowing which tactics and strategies to employ is nearly impossible.

You don’t just need a course or content to tell you what to do. You need a community around you; a place to put your ideas into practice. You need practical tools and guidance on how to use them.

Learn from masters in their field, and dive deep into marketing strategy, positioning, customer discovery, community and product led growth, performance marketing, and founder led sales. In 6 weeks, leave with the foundations to build a sustainable growth engine for your business.
connect and learn with a vibrant community of marketers
Growth Track fellows are a diverse group of entrepreneurs — building everything from side hustles to small businesses to venture-backed startups. The fundamentals of growth are the same, and within this track, you’ll learn from speakers, mentors, and peers.

frequently asked questions

Who should join?

Day One  is designed for both early-stage entrepreneurs as well as entrepreneurial people who are exploring their next move. 

 

It doesn’t matter if you are building a small business, a venture-scale startup, a side hustle, or anything in between. We’ve designed the programming and curated the community to support entrepreneurs of all types.

 

You don’t need to be full time on your startup, in fact many – if not most – Day One Members have day jobs or other responsibilities.

 

Day One Members come from across industries – tech, banking, consulting, marketing and media, consumer goods, food and beverage, and many more. Past Day One Members have come from leading startups like Talkspace and Notarize, tech companies like Apple and Facebook, consulting firms like Accenture and Bain, and so many more top tier companies.

 

What we do expect of all Day One Members is curiosity, an attitude to share and give (advice, ideas, connections), and a willingness to mentor as well as be a mentee. These attitudes are what make the Day One community strong, and allow us to select growth-minded people who believe in winning together.

How much does it cost?

We offer three membership tiers, starting at $49/mo. Click here to learn more about our membership options.

What does a typical week look like?

A typical week depends on whether or not you’re participating in a Track.

 

If you’re active in a Track, a typical week includes 2-3 sessions, all focused around a specific topic. These are designed to be more intensive. After a Track, you’ll be buzzing with inspiration, fresh ideas, new tools to utilize, and you should transition into a steadier pace of execution… until your next Track.

 

If you’re not active in a Track, then there’s still likely something happening almost every day, but everything is designed to be optional. You could attend an AMA session with an experienced founder or investor. You could attend an Office Hour session with a member of the Day One coaching team. Or you could attend a feedback and working session to show off your latest progress and get ideas for your peers.

What is the time commitment?

You can spend only a few minutes per week engaging with the community, or dedicate 40+ hours to your business, or anything in between.

About 70% of events and sessions will be between 11am-1pm ET. About 30% of sessions will be at other times.  All sessions are recorded if you miss anything. As we build out track partners, times will vary based on partners' schedules and guest speaker schedules' so we have to stay flexible.  We will always aim for lunchtime ET, but there's always a chance we'll have to schedule something outside of those times.

Much of Day One is a “get out what you put in” experience, and those who learn the most are the most active and intentional about being a member of the community.

Are the events remote?

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 of our fellows work full-time jobs and are exploring entrepreneurship on the side. But please be aware that if you join the Tracks or Coaching Membership, you’ll need to dedicate significant time around your work schedule to participate.

Do I have to pay for tracks?

With a Tracks Membership or Coaching Membership, tracks are included. If you are enrolled in the Community Membership tier, you will need to upgrade to join tracks.

How will I know when new tracks are offered?

We will share this info on Slack, email you, and update our website.

Which membership tier is right for me?

We offer three membership options that make Day One inclusive and accessible to anyone, starting at $49/mo. Click here to learn more about our three options.
