on Deck no-Code Fellowship

Bring your idea to life without code, while building in public.
In 8 weeks.

The On Deck No-Code Fellowship combines world-class curriculum, expert-led sessions and an incredible community to help you launch a capstone project in 8 weeks.

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.

@beondeck has created an unparalleled product, community & a loyal, authentic member base like I’ve never seen before. In my time in SV I’ve seen many attempts at creating communities large & small. On Deck is magical because the team behind it is just relentless & good people.💕

Michael Houck

Pre @beondeck: Vague ideas + working alone + unclear paths forward

Post @beondeck: More defined ideas than I have time for + 2 cofounders who love to hustle + a growing, unique business

Sneh Ganjoo

Midway through ODF & every time I attend a session or interact with the community I have the same excitement as Day 0. I wish all founder communities were like this.

I have never seen a community that translates the true essence of business & ideas beyond borders before @beondeck

Marcus Woxneryd

I’ve heard that life after @beondeck is crazy good - powerful community. But no one told me about before. #ODNC1 Slack is absolutely buzzing! Reaping the benefits in week -1. 🤯

Matt Harris

At @BainCapVC we are huge fans of @beondeck, and thrilled to be involved in this Fintech Fellowship. We need more builders in fintech, and this program will be part of building, and diversifying, the pipeline.

Searching the directory for any startup-related questions before searching on Google or Twitter 🤟

David Hoang

I’m so glad I decided to do @beondeck’s writing fellowship. The weekly writing workshops are so helpful. In addition to the writing, it’s great connecting with other writers and brainstorming.

One idea is called “Design Management: Year One.”

David Lobo

@beondeck is the most impactful community I've ever been involved with. It's the launchpad that has allowed me move faster every day. So thankful for their badass team.

Hugo Amsellem

I wanted to write again and @BeOnDeck launched the Writer Fellowship.

Then I wanted to start a podcast and they announced the Podcast Fellowship.

Now I'm thinking about becoming a YouTuber...

TAKE MY MONEY.

Dave Nemetz

After a week in the @beondeck ODW1 writer fellowship, I'm pumped about the future for interdisciplinary communities. It's awesome to join a group from diverse professional backgrounds over a shared passion.

Props to @eriktorenberg for what he is building.

Dan Stern

The kickoff for @beondeck ODW1 was the best onboarding experience I've ever had.

Huge props to @eriktorenberg and @maxnuss and team for making 3 hrs of zoom actually enjoyable

Celine Halioua

So thankful for the personal and strategic support (not to mention emotional!) On Deck provided for the last 2 months. Love the team & couldn’t recommend them more.

Happy to chat about my experience + refer.

Mike MacCombie

The quality of ODF companies that pitched today were fantastic - congrats to the whole @beondeck team for putting together that demo day.

Terry Xu

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

Everett Berry

When fundraising stopped cold and enterprise budgets froze in March 2020 i freaked tf out.

Luckily, as one of my favorite founders @mishkaorakzai said, "Silicon Valley moved to the cloud".

Forever grateful to the OD team and community for helping me meet the moment. #ODF3

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 virtual fellowship programs 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.

Apply for the No-Code Fellowship

The second cohort kicks off July 10. Early Bird pricing of $1990 is available for until APril 22nd. Afterwards, access to the program is $2,290 (or four installments of $575).*

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?

Early Bird pricing for those who complete the application by April 22nd is $1,990.

Regular pricing for those who complete the application after April 22nd is $2,290. Tuition can be paid in a lump sum or 4 equal installments, starting when you accept your offer.

We have limited scholarships available for each cohort thanks to our Access Fund. Information about scholarship applications will be provided to accepted Fellows closer to the kickoff date.

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.

How long will I have access to the community?

After the fellowship, you’ll retain access to your cohort and be able to subscribe to membership for continued access to the On Deck ecosystem.

Did we miss your question?  Drop us a line and we will get back to you asap.
