FAQ

Who should apply?

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

  • An experienced founder (raised over $2.5m) or serial founder in the proptech space
  • A real estate professional working in the residential or commercial sectors
  • An experienced operator (director level plus) working in construction, real estate, development, architecture, or redevelopment 
  • A proptech investor aiming to hone your investment thesis, access deal flow, and find skilled operators for your portfolio companies
  • Eager to be an active participant and contributor in a growing community, as much of the value of On Deck comes from the network and peer-to-peer connections
What if I’m an early stage founder?

On Deck’s founder programs - On Deck Founders (ODF) and On Deck X (ODX) - are the entry points to the OD ecosystem for earlier-stage founders. Joining those programs opens doors for you into all the On Deck sector programs and you’ll have access to the expertise of our PropTech Innovators Network and other experts in multiple fields.

What does it cost?

ODPT is an annual membership that costs $2990/year. After acceptance, we’ll work with your team to expense some or all of the cost through L&D. Payment options are available.

Are there scholarships or financing options available?

Our goal is to make the Fellowship accessible to the absolute best talent, no matter their financial situation.

All Fellows have the option to pay in four monthly installments (with no interest or additional charges). We also have a limited number of scholarships available thanks to our Access Initiative. Information about scholarship applications will be provided to accepted Fellows closer to the kickoff date.

What is the time commitment?

Between attending sessions, meeting other fellows 1:1, and curated mastermind groups you can expect to spend ~2 hours per week engaging with the program. We recognize that everyone in the program is working full time with busy schedules and a lot of personal commitments so engagement may vary week to week and that’s ok.

We have purposefully structured the program with your busy schedules in mind, allowing for structured content, a speaker series, and more curated small group sessions pairing those with challenges to those who have solved them before. We will also engage asynchronously on Slack. This structure will continue throughout the annual membership.

Is this a fully remote program?

Yes: OD PropTech will be run entirely remotely. This enables participation from all corners of the world. On Deck has mastered the playbook for building remote communities and relationship building online, and we 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.

How does the application process work?

We accept applications on a rolling basis, and you can save and come back to your application on our online platform. Upon acceptance, you’ll be invited to join the next onboarding cohort, which runs quarterly in January, April, July, and October. To be considered for the next cohort, which opens January 15, 2022, you must apply by January 3, 2022. Scholarship applications will be awarded in the order they’re received and space is limited - so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
