In short about us

We are a team of M&A insiders with decades of shared experience in every aspect of the M&A industry.

We are former M&A practitioners committed to developing practical, innovative trainings and technologies that will disrupt and transform the outdated methods of M&A.

We are passionate about delivering the practical skills omitted from business school courses and often too specific for corporate workshops and bootcamps.

Our primary focus is to help stakeholders work smarter and faster by improving communication, transparency, and workflow, which will ultimately minimize deal obstacles and maximize deal value.

The Importance of Education in M&A

As former M&A team members, we have experienced first-hand the shortcomings of current M&A IT solutions and outdated project management processes. Technology is improving at an unprecedented rate, but M&A firms are relying on decades-old technology and methodology that holds them back.

Instead of utilizing technology as a critical and supportive tool for improvement, firms are using outdated technology that either slows them down, or does not help extract the maximum potential value from a deal.

Much of this can be attributed to the continuing education gap in our industry. Specifically, we see an overflow of training on valuation and modeling, but very little on process and change management.

This is where Day1 comes in.

We believe education drives technology and technology drives education. We have combined the best industry practitioners and engineers to develop educational tools and focused technology to close deals and integrate companies faster.

Through our online courses and training programs, we are committed to providing crucial content and direct access to skilled practitioners that will help M&A professionals advance to the expert level and greatly improve internal workflow while simultaneously maximizing value on both sides of the deal. We not only view the deal from a holistic, objective viewpoint, finding opportunities to reduce work and increase insights along the way, but we also integrate technology to support continuous innovation.

In the words of Peter Drucker: "The enterprise that does not innovate inevitably ages and declines. And in a period of rapid change such as the present…the decline will be fast."
