We’re excited to have you aboard!
Since announcing the Fellowship in early May, we’ve reviewed over 1,000 applications, and filtered for the absolute top talent from across the On Deck network.
If you’re seeing this, we think you’re awesome – one of the 100 best we know, in fact.
So what now?
There’s a few things you need to know which have changed since we released the original Medium post.
Firstly, we’ve pushed back two weeks and are now kicking off on June 15th.
Secondly, there’s now a $750 fee associated with joining the program. Why? Read our FAQ for an in-depth answer, but TL;DR:
On Deck events have historically been free, but the Fellowship is a bit more operationally intensive.
Each participant having some “skin in the game” encourages them to be more actively engaged. Furthermore, relying solely on outside sponsorship risks warping incentives. We are extremely selective about who we work with, and want to make sure everything we do is in your best interest, period.
We have a handful of scholarships available for founders with all the talent, but without the means. If you’d like to apply for one of these, let us know.
