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:
Scaled With Software
Spirit of Service
To be a good fit for On Deck Scale, you are probably
* A highly motivated founder of a venture-scale company who would benefit from the authentic relationships forged with other growth-oriented founders.
* Open to seeking the support, coaching, and mentorship required to scale yourself and your company.
* Willing to share your experiences, challenge assumptions, expand your perspectives, and raise the bar for yourself and others .
* Committed to lifelong learning and a spirit of service to others.
The cost of On Deck Scale is $12,000 or 6 installments of $2,450.
You should plan to invest 2-3 hours per week in On Deck Scale. The curriculum is designed to help you leverage time, networks, and resources to your exponential advantage. It’s our intention that one unit invested will yield many in return.
We are committed to identifying and supporting the very best founders at every stage of company growth from Seed to IPO. We’ll group founders appropriately based on company stage and other relevant factors. Founders who have not raised capital should consider applying to the On Deck Fellowship.
We’re accepting applications from founders of seed stage companies to IPO. Seed stage founders must have raised at least $1.5M in the last six months or achieved $100k MRR run rate.
We certainly believe so. ODS will benefit any founder committed to significant learning and personal growth, expanding their network and personal influence, and becoming a better leader. While the On Deck network is large and continually expanding, On Deck Scale is designed to help you scale yourself as fast as you’re scaling your company.
We are accepting Fellows from around the world.
For this first cohort, the majority of sessions will be in North American time zones, but recordings will available to Fellows at any time. There will be additional content specifically designed for Fellows based in Europe.
Fellows from Asia are welcome to join, but we expect to have fewer sessions in local time zones for the first cohort of ODS.
Not yet – At this time we’re keeping focused on company founders.
Yes: ODS 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.
Yes – As long as you are the founder of a venture-scale company.
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.
