What happens when the top minds of an industry work together?

The world of M&A is highly fragmented. Large corporations guard their methodologies closely and consultants and bankers sell their expertise for hefty fees. We think knowledge should be available to all. That’s why we’ve brought top practitioners together to create a knowledge sharing platform connecting M&A professionals with education and integrated tools.

Our Mission

Our goal at Day1 is simple: to help people in the M&A industry get the most out of their deals.

We believe that successful deals come from improved processes, and that improved processes come from education, integrated tools, and knowledge sharing among professionals.

Whether you are in banking, corp dev, or integration; whether you are a CEO operating at the top strategic levels, or an employee working to integrate a single function; whether you are involved from the buy-side, the sell-side, or operate in an advisory capacity; it is our belief that you can benefit from access to the knowledge of your peers in the M&A field.

FirmRoom is a simple and powerful data room designed around two principles: ease of use and maximum security. Many virtual data rooms are confusing, difficult to use, and full of design flaws which slow down document processing and create bottlenecks. FirmRoom breaks this pattern without breaking the bank.
