Both Ashneer Grover and Deepinder Goyal tweeted about "Day One".

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had famously used the term “Day One” when in 2016, in a letter to shareholders, the billionaire said “it’s Day 1 for a couple of decades”, thus underlining his business view and Amazon’s work culture. Ashneer Grover, BharatPe co-founder, feels that start-up founders using the phrase “Day One” is the “lamest thing”.

“I think start-up Founders using the phrase ‘It’s still Day 1’ is the lamest thing. No potential talent/existing team is getting excited by reading it after you’ve been in business for years,” Grover tweeted.


“Maybe they use it as a hidden message for investors ki exit maangne mat aa jaana (Maybe they use it as a hidden message for investors saying don’t come seeking an exit).”
