Frequently Asked Questions

Day Zero is a great fit for two types of people.

First is the aspiring founder, those who have the ambition and desire to start a business but haven’t yet found their next big thing, don’t yet have the conviction in their idea(s) to jump in, or don’t yet have the team around them to accelerate forward.

Second is the innovator, those who view exploring business trends and opportunities as either a personal hobby or professional activity. You could be an investor, a corporate innovator, a freelancer, or really anyone who wants to develop entrepreneurial muscles.

Day Zero is a light touch, membership-based community designed around the earliest stages of the entrepreneurial journey. We launched Day Zero because the on ramp to entrepreneurship was missing, and no one was helping aspiring founders actually get the job done and get in the game. We view Day Zero as the absolute earliest stages of entrepreneurship.

The Day One Fellowship is designed for early-stage founders who have an idea, have conviction in their direction, but need support, guidance, and resources to navigate their windy path and build momentum. At this stage, a founder needs a higher touch, personally tailored experience, and the breadth of what needs to be learned and focused on expands. The Day One Fellowship is thus a selective, high touch program for founders in this stage. 

As a member of Day Zero, you get access to:

  1. a tailored methodology, workflow and tools to make navigating the idea maze a snap
  2. access to facilitated sessions that no one else is putting on – brainstorms and briefings from experts, founders, investors who can point the way to big opportunities
  3. a community of collaborative peers who are cheering each other on, providing feedback and ideas, and most importantly, connecting to find co-founders
  4. members only newsletter of the best ideas, trends and insights from within Day Zero and across the web

What you really get is access to an ecosystem that will level up how you think about startup ideas and cut short your journey to launching a new business.

A regular priced Day Zero membership is $99 per quarter or $300 per year.
