TL;DR: On Deck is launching On Deck Business Development: a continuous community for BD leaders who want to accelerate business growth through strategic partnerships and level up their careers alongside a highly-curated network of peers.
Ask ten people what business development means and you’ll get ten different answers; It’s a broad term and has its own unique definition across different businesses, industries and even countries.
As a business development leader, you forge a unique path by constantly learning on the job and recreating the wheel when it comes to best practices, playbooks, innovative tactics, and sourcing the best talent. In this landscape, it’s challenging to find like-minded peers who have similar sets of experiences and insights for taking your business to the next level.
Enter the On Deck Business Development Fellowship (ODBD).
ODBD is a continuous community for BD leaders who want to accelerate business growth through strategic partnerships and level up their careers alongside a highly-curated network of peers.
The fellowship kicks off with a 4-week immersive experience; an opportunity to get to know the community and learn how to navigate On Deck to achieve your goals for the year ahead. ODBD brings together top-tier business development leaders and key decision makers in the industry, who have crafted unique approaches to building relationships, networking, closing deals, and building revenue-efficient teams.
After the initial month, you’ll get regular access to:
- Networking events with industry experts who have grown their businesses exponentially
- Curated connections and mastermind sessions with peers
- Intimate deep dives and action-oriented workshops with industry leaders
You can dive into everything the fellowship has to offer, or opt-in only to what best suits your goals and time. We curate all programming and connections to maximize your time and the value you get out of ODBD.
Whether you are a Head of BD at an early startup or a VP of Partnerships at an established organization, ODBD will enable you to exchange playbooks, win deals, and build deep relationships with a highly curated group of peers.
