Run something on first start of a service

I'm struggling to figure out how to start a particular initialization when a service first comes up (since service startup, system startup, or ever).
I'm pretty sure it's well documented, but if the question is phrased incorrectly, you can search for a long time.

What daemontools-encore does with ./start seems pretty ok - and would be near perfect if it were to wait for ./start to finish before running ./run.

s6 has a concept for ./finish - so I think a ./start concept is there as well and I just can't find it. Can someone please nudge me on this?
