On Deck Fund

THE COMMUNITY FUND

On Deck invests in world-class founders launching early-stage companies

The Community Fund invests alongside the On Deck Ecosystem Fund (with institutional investors) for each company that On Deck invests in. Our aim is to invest in 400-500+ companies over the next 18-24 months.

Contribute to founder success

Founders need advice, introductions, talent, and support to launch and grow. The Community Fund investors are in a great position to help them succeed.

Why a Community Fund?

The hardest thing about starting a company is not building a product but getting it in people's hands, getting the right co-founder, and hiring an early team. Aligning the On Deck community behind portfolio companies helps us unlock knowledge, talent, capital, and distribution.

Invest in the
Community Fund

Invest in the Community Fund with a quarterly or yearly commitment and own a portion of all companies that On Deck invests in.

FAQ

What are the fees associated with the On Deck Community Fund?

The On Deck Community fund charges a standard 2% management fee and 20% carried interest.

Can investors increase, decrease, or cancel their subscription?

Once funded, subscriptions cannot be modified. Subscription amounts may not be decreased or canceled for the first four quarterly funds. Once the four quarters have passed, subscription amounts may be increased, decreased, or canceled at any time on a quarter-by-quarter basis. Subscriptions will automatically renew unless canceled. Once funded, subscriptions cannot be modified.

What happens if all my capital isn’t deployed within the quarter?

All unused contributions will be rolled over to the next quarterly fund, regardless of whether or not an investor is renewing their subscription.


How do I receive my K-1 documents?

The On Deck Community Fund is hosted on AngelList.

AngelList provides all investors their K-1s electronically and free of charge. Investors will receive K-1s for each quarterly fund, as necessary. For example if you invest for four quarters, you will receive four K-1s reflecting the underlying investments. AngelList will bundle all these K-1s together for you.

Is there a max quarterly investment?

Yes, the maximum quarterly investment in the On Deck Community Fund is $25,000. If you would like to invest more than $25,000/quarter, please contact odxinvestors@beondeck.com.

How do distributions work?

Subscribing LPs participate only in distributions from the quarterly funds they invest in. An LP has no exposure in portfolio investments of funds formed before their subscription was accepted or after it is canceled. Investors receive distributions as a quarterly fund exits its investments.

Distributions are typically made on a quarterly basis. There is no carried interest charged for quarterly funds, but distributions received by quarterly funds are net of carry and fees. Quarterly funds that have not exited all investments by the end of their term will be liquidated.
