With you
since DayOne

You believe. We support.

The what

DayOne's a dedicated banking service.

That didn't say much, right?

DayOne's here to support your dream. To give you the (financial) means to kick-start your startup — because we all need to start somewhere, right?

If your company's growing faster than you predicted, you're in the right place. But first: congratulations! Having the guts to chase dreams isn't for everyone…

And that's also why DayOne exists. To support your global expansion in a secure way, so that you don't depend on your own funds only.

Let's chase that dream together.
