Our Mission

Day One provides current and former Amazonians with access to qualified startup investments.

We invest in former Amazonians who traded in their blue badges to become founders. Then we leverage the Amazon Alumni talent pool to create unfair advantages for the founders we invest in.

We intend to go out of our way to build a more diverse and inclusive startup ecosystem. We're the go-to community for current Amazonians and Amazon Alumni around the world to engage and support one another, particularly those ready to support startups.

Our Why

We believe there should be more startups with former Amazon founders.

We’re obsessed with finding, supporting, and investing in founders that are going to move the needle.

We know Amazonians have the experience to scale businesses and we seek to support more Amazon founders.
