Our Goals and Vision

The mission of Welcome to Day One is to discover and share the stories of Australian founders to inspire others to action and remind all of the regional founders out there, that they are not alone.

The goal of doing this is to open the lines of communication between regions. Because, together, as one, we can achieve so much more. Even if it just knowing there are others out there facing similar challenges to you.

If you have a story or know of someone that would be a great fit for the show, please get in touch.
