on Deck no-Code Fellowship

Bring your idea to life without code, while building in public. In 10 weeks.

The On Deck Program Fellowship combines world-class curriculum, expert-led sessions and an incredible community to help you launch a capstone project in 10 weeks (but stay in the community after)

In partnership with

Everything you need to become a prolific no-code builder

Navigate the overwhelming landscape of no-code and building in public with insightful workshops, curated content, co-building sessions, peer-to-peer accountability and much more.

Become the best builder you can be without code

Whether you’re looking to use no-code tools to build an MVP to and raise money, start and operate a profitable business, or just automate business workflows, commit to a capstone project at ODNC and we’ll help you build and launch it by the end of the program.

Get comfortable building in public

Finding early users is critical to your idea’s success. We’ll help you understand the art of building an audience even before you’ll need them for your product launch. Instead of building in silos, when you build with your audience, you’ll have a tighter feedback loop and a higher chance of success.

Level up your automation game

Learn to use no-code to streamline your business workflows, save time and automate tedious tasks so you can focus on the work that matters.

Carri Craver

The ODNC Slack is true mind boggling goodness. My expectations were sky high and it is better than I imagined.

The last time I felt this in awe I was standing on a mountaintop after a 2 day climb.

Nick Singh

On Deck helped me realize that writing was a viable career. As a Software Engineer in SV, thought founding a tech startup was the only path. Then ODF1 happened.

12 months later, and I got a book on the way & a newsletter with 44k subscribers. Big fans of @david__booth & team!

Harvey Multani

@beondeck will do for human capital what @AngelList did for financial capital

Vensy Krishna

If you're still wondering what is, yes, you should care about what they're doing. It's one of the biggest educational revolutions in our times and if you're passionate about learning and future of work, take a look at what they're doing

Kevin David

On Deck is going to be huge!

Thanks for letting me in when I was exploring what next after my stint at @AngelList.

Joined @beondeck in June 2020, met my co-founders in August, raised a seed round late last year. Team of 11 now, building a MVP with a few creators.

Jonathan Gregory

Education is ripe for transformation. @beondeck model will be the standard for experiential and community based learning. I would choose it over a traditional MBA.

Maggie Norris

The network of founders and mentors provided through the fellowship is incredible!!

Days before kickoff and I’ve already had 1-on-1s with so many amazing people! 💕

Matt Alston

The two best decisions I made in 2020 were leaving my job to start a company with @MelissaZhang13, and joining @beondeck.

Pretty wild how much On Deck has grown and evolved in just the last 6 months. Can’t event imagine what it’ll look like a year from now 🚀

CS Freeland

Wish I was a part of every @beondeck cohort lol. What a badass concept, and they are really changing the game. Can’t wait to see the outcomes next year.

Anna Nasr

@beondeck enabled me to work with incredible founders, helped me discover my product idea--and, through an On Deck fellow--got me my first pre-seed funding. I can't articulate how amazing the On Deck network is and what a positive force it's been in my life. Apply!

Jacob Peters

Thanks to @beondeck I got reconnected with @FranklinBi last night from our days at @jpmorgan.

Seriously such an incredible community – serendipity and genuine connection without any transactional feeling. Highly recommend to anyone with a startup itch.

Joey DeBruin

Not only is community the new scarcity, it's absolutely a cold-start problem. Before @beondeck, I hated "networking." After, I have the opposite problem: too many genuinely energy-adding connections which keep branching out into more.

Terry Xu

HOOOOOOOLY! The @beondeck kick-off event is beyond my wildest imagination on how an online community can be run.

Anthony McGuire

Highly recommend that people apply to the On Deck Writer Fellowship! It has been a gamechanger for me--one of the best programs in the world!

Sunil Rajaraman

I'm decently networked in tech. But I joined @beondeck on the advice of @hnshah and @tylerwillis. I learned that networks need refreshing.

On Deck opened me up to a new set of amazing people I will invest in, be friends with, and follow for life.

The On Deck Method

We're building a modern educational institution that redefines how community and learning come together. Being part of any On Deck program means you’ll have access to a community of world-class professionals. With every new program we launch and cohort we start, your network gets stronger.

Here are the cornerstones of the On Deck experience:

Deep Friendships

Our 8- to 10-week-long virtual fellowships provide members with community, education, and support. This is a place for cohort-style learning, but also deep personal connections.

Unparalleled Knowledge

There are limitless opportunities for learning and sharing here. You’ll get access to expert speakers, office hours, build weekends, and our session library full of curated content. Dig in!

Community Diversity

We’re proud to have a community diverse in culture, thought, and life experiences. This enables revolutionary ideas, inclusive solutions, and boundless growth opportunities.

Scaled With Software

We’re building in-house tools to improve how we share community knowledge, aligned opportunities, and helpful connections.

Engineered Serendipity

When everyone is going through a shared experience and seeking similar goals, incredible things happen.

Spirit of Service

One of the things we love most about our community is how willing and excited members are to support one another. This spirit is the strong heartbeat of the On Deck community.

FAQ

Who should apply?

To be a good fit for ODNC, you are probably:

* Looking to launch an MVP, a no-code business or a side project, or interested in automating business workflows.
* Familiar with no-code tools.
* At least a little bit entrepreneurial and action-biased, with an independent spirit.
* Eager to be an active participant in a growing community, as much of the value of On Deck comes from the network and peer-to-peer connections.

You do not need to have an existing project to apply to the Fellowship. ODNC will help you decide what to launch as part of your capstone project.

What does it cost?

Joining the On Deck No-Code Fellowship is $1,990

For this first inaugural cohort, we’re offering the program at an early-bird rate of $1,990, with the cost rising for subsequent cohorts.

What is the time commitment?

ODNC is a choose-your-own-adventure buffet. You get out what you put in: often, the biggest contributors are also the biggest beneficiaries.

Depending on your schedule and interests, you could choose to:

* Attend everything and “gorge” yourself on knowledge until you explode
* Tune in at your leisure to attend sessions that interest you
* Or just search the directory and connect with interesting people one-on-one

Is this a fully remote program?

Yes: ODNC will be run entirely remotely. This enables participation from all corners of the world. We’ve spent the past few ODF cohorts mastering the playbook for building remote communities and relationship building online, and will apply the same approach here.

Post-COVID, we’ll return to organizing offline programming like dinners, small gatherings, and retreats, but the core Fellowship will remain a remote-first experience.

What are the Guiding Values of On Deck?

You can view our values here, but to summarize: Service, Sacredness, Respect, and Gratitude.
