On Deck was catalytic in the earliest introductions to angel investors which gave us the momentum needed for later rounds of fundraising. Being around world-class people that are the best in the industry, and to be able to share knowledge was huge.

Building a startup is hard. On Deck makes it easier.Throughout my time in ODF & ODS the founders and builders at On Deck have provided me with endless resources and expertise to get Arrenda launched and backed by world class investors.This community is incredible.

Leda Health

On Deck set us up to realize that it's okay if our vision emerged as really big. The community has reinforced my determination to proceed with this idea. On Deck also provided investment, and an actual pipeline to procure more investment. I'm still seeing the second-order effects come in, measured in investment. It's worth 10x more than the program was in the initial eight weeks.

I met my co-founder at On Deck. It was during a time of transition and just what I needed. The network is incredible and I would encourage founders to bring them on their cap table. It’s uniquely networked capital.
