Tech-focused VC Ankur Capital has announced the launch of a pre-seed funding platform called Day Zero for early-stage startups. The Day Zero platform will be sector-agnostic and focus primarily on sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, SMB SaaS, fintech, logistics, mobility, construction, livelihoods and everything in between.
Day Zero is designed in such a way that it will help startups cover everything from initiation to entrepreneurs to scale up. From funding to ecosystem support to mentoring, all aspects will be taken care of under one roof.
The Day Zero platform has been launched along with other micro-VC partners such as Eximius Ventures, Upsparks, Capital A and Gemba. Over time, the team will add more partners to ensure that startups are heard from all sides when it comes to funding. According to the company statement, the platform will not only help pre-seed founders take initiatives but the scale and succeed at the highest level.
Earlier this year in January, Ankur Capital organized the second edition of its pitch fest called Pitchfest 2, which was also meant to help early-stage startups raise funding. The objective of the event was to assist startups by giving them an opportunity to present their ideas to some of the renowned micro-VCs who could provide funds to help them hit the ground running.
Ankur Capital is well-known for being one of the early backers of agritech in the country and it has around 30 companies in its portfolio across two funds.
