Who should apply?

Who should apply?

Miami Tech with Keith Rabois will bring together top builders from all walks of life.

To be a fit for the program, you are probably:

  • A talented member of the tech ecosystem (employee, angel investor, VC, founder, etc)
  • Looking to explore Miami’s burgeoning tech ecosystem
  • Eager to be an active participant and contributor in events and peer-to-peer sessions, as much of the value of the program will come from the network and community.

Is this a one time thing?

Yes. Miami Tech with Keith Rabois was a Drop, a one-off exclusive program in pursuit of our mission to unlock the potential of the most talented people in the world. It was a one-time thing, but we are planning other events like this one — sign up to our waitlist to be the first to know about our next Drops.

Is this the same as an On Deck Fellowship?

No. This a one-time collaboration between On Deck and Keith Rabois. During the experiential program, fellows explore ideas, build projects and grow their networks in-person in the burgeoning Miami technology ecosystem.

Will you do more in-person programs as drops?

Maybe. We’re focused on our core fellowship experience, but if the opportunity arises, we might do another one!

What does it cost?

Access to Miami Tech with Keith Rabois costs $2490. We have limited scholarships available thanks to our Access Fund. Existing On Deck fellows will receive a 25% reduced rate. 

Information about scholarship applications will be provided to accepted Fellows closer to the kickoff date.

What is included in the application fee?

The application fee covers all events and programming costs. Housing and other expenses are not included.

Where will fellows live during the program?

Fellows will live wherever they choose. We’ll send recommendations for short term stays for people who want to live with other people in the cohort.

When should fellows arrive in Miami?

Fellows should arrive in Miami by the first event, which will take place on April 29. Venue details and start time will be posted closer to kickoff.

Will I get to spend one-on-one time with Keith Rabois and other speakers?

Keith won't be able to spend 1:1 time, but we will have a couple of Q&A sessions with him as a group. Additionally, he may or may not be leading a session at Barry's Bootcamp. :) Other speakers will be on a case-by-case basis, depending on their availability. We do encourage you to connect if possible while you are there!
