Ankur Capital, a tech-focused VC, 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 will primarily focus on sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, SMB SaaS, fintech, logistics, mobility, construction, livelihoods and everything in between. Day Zero is built in such a way that it will help startups cover everything from startup to scaling for entrepreneurs. Everything from funding to ecosystem support to mentorship would be taken care of under one roof.


“For the Day Zero platform, we are working with the best angels, micro-VCs and ecosystem enablers, from banks to cloud providers. The range of founders that Ankur Capital and its partners have supported to date will be of great help to founders than until Day Zero. We also aim to help connect our founders with top investors as they raise follow-on capital. With this platform, we want to help startups grow and succeed at every level,” said Mohammed Amaan Memon, Day Zero.

The Day Zero platform was launched with other micro-VC partners such as Eximius Ventures, Upsparks, Capital A, and Gemba. Over time, the team will add more partners to ensure startups are heard across the board when it comes to funding. The platform will not only help pre-Seed founders get started, but scale and succeed at the highest levels, according to the company’s statement.

Earlier in January this year, Ankur Capital hosted the second edition of its pitch festival called PitchFest 2, which also aimed to help early-stage startups raise funds. The event aimed to help startups by giving them the opportunity to pitch their ideas to some of the big-name micro-VCs who could provide funding to help them get started.

Ankur Capital is known for being one of the earliest backers of agritech in the country and has around 30 portfolio companies in two funds.
