On Deck helped us hire our first employee, raise $900k in pre-seed, and accelerate our GTM motion within the network. Our Series B wouldn’t have happened without On Deck.
I’ve hired 5+ employees (including execs), raised from 20+ investors, found 10+ customers, met 200+ awesome people, and made many dear friends through the On Deck community over the last two years.
On Deck helped me get conviction on one of the four ideas I had when I joined. Those same fellows became our most valuable early users.
- Annual or quarterly commitment
- Exposure to all deals during the quarters you are subscribed
- Quarterly commitment
- Exposure to quarterly deals
On Deck helped me recruit our team, find our first beta customers, and build a community of support to get through the challenges of the founder to CEO transition.
On Deck has been transformational for finding my co-founder and meeting like-minded individuals. It brings together people who are exceptional, ready to start a company and the mentorship needed.
On Deck was catalytic in the earliest introductions to angel investors which gave us the momentum needed for later rounds of fundraising.
I met my co-founder Alan in ODF2, we hired an account executive and growth marketer through On Deck’s talent programs, and that helped us raise from Felicis and NFX.
I hired my first engineer and my first designer via On Deck.
On Deck was instrumental to OfficeTogether’s fundraising and early hires. We hired a strategy lead from On Deck First 50 and a designer from On Deck Designers. I’ve also made some lifelong friends.
On Deck helped find our first users, validate our idea, and connect us with the fund who led our $1.85M seed round.
I met my co-founder and CTO Akshay thanks to On Deck. He's a force of nature and we complement each other perfectly.
On Deck helped us validate our idea and connected us with our very first users, some of whom angel invested in our first round.
On Deck helped me go from idea to MVP, acquire my very first customers, and raise $2.7 million from Sequoia Surge, Village Global and On Deck angels.
The On Deck Community helped me make 5+ key early hires, and raise a $12 million seed round from great investors.
Our first three On Deck hires have set the bar quite high for candidates that will come through in the future.
What I absolutely loved about the experience (and want to continue recreating) are the Mastermind Groups that met once a week. It didn't matter if my work with Compound Foods caused me to miss programming or fireside chats, no matter what, I made time for that group.
The On Deck Community fund charges a standard 2% management fee and 20% carried interest.
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.
All unused contributions will be rolled over to the next quarterly fund, regardless of whether or not an investor is renewing their subscription.
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.
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.
