Two words review of @beondeck: AMAZING EXPERIENCE 🙌. And a prediction: it will become the default place entrepreneurs go (back) to throughout their career to start/explore what's next. Life is too short to wing it when there is already a place to find amazing folks to work with.

Only 1 week into's First 50 Fellowship program and I am soooo totally blown away.

Can't wait to get at it tomorrow for week 2!

@beondeck for me has been friends, confidants, experts, and advisors all bundled in one amazing community of people.

It’s the vibe of childhood play groups, late night talks, college discussions, weekend hackathons, and so much more.

No better way to step into 2021.

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!

The fellowship still hasn't started and I just received gold nuggets.

Crazy how @beondeck is able to attract talented people with a great willingness to share and help others.

Joining On Deck is like getting 1000+ mentors, 1000+ thought partners, 1000+ accountability partners, and 1000+ followers instantly.

It's too good to be true, but it's true.

2021 will be the year where On Deck becomes known to all new entrepreneurs.

A lot of starting and growing a company is growing yourself.

I joined the @beondeck Fellowship (Cohort 3!) in March and have spent the last 1 month achieving what should have taken 4-5 months.

Highly recommend @beondeck for angels and founders. I have learned a lot so far in their angel program.

Masterclass in launching & iterating: @eriktorenberg, @david__booth, @btaleisnik and the @beondeck crew.

Something wild being announced every week it seems. Incredibly hard to launch & iterate on community too. By doing it with humbleness and transparency they are crushing it.

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
