Exclusive community and On Deck access
The On Deck Venture Capital Fellowship (ODVC) is a community of world-class investors looking to expand their knowledge, build meaningful relationships and better support world changing businesses.

ODVC is peer-to-peer community – there are no speakers – where everyone is world-class at their own domain and delighted to contribute and build the network's communal knowledge.

During the program you'll engage in close-knit, tactical discussions led by expert fellows, broaden your network across geographies and categories, and get exclusive early access to deal flow from the On Deck Founders Fellowship and other programs.

So far I’ve been in @beondeck slack for two days and raised $20,000. The program doesn’t even kick-off until tomorrow. If this doesn’t convince you to join, idk what will. #beondeck #odf6

Dipti Desai

@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.💕

Matias Sanchez

Couldn't recommend this enough. If you're writing for the internet or writing in general, this is the community you never knew you needed.

Chris Messina

Beyond moonshots, we need more 50+ year visions for anchoring the thrust and intention of our collective work.

Proud to be a recent alum of the @beondeck Fellowship.

Coco Liu

The word “community” didn’t have a meaning to me until I joined @beondeck.

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.

Griff Foxley

Said it before, will say it again. On Deck Writers Fellowship continues to be a profound learning community of electric content and collaboration. Can't recommend enough.

CS Freeland

Wish I was a part of every @beondeck cohort lol. What a badass concept, and they are really changing the game. Can’t wait to see the outcomes next year.

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.”

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.

Miguel Solano

Maybe biased but @beondeck's ODF may well be the closest today to early YC in the Cambridge days.

Jacob Peters

Thanks to @beondeck I got reconnected with @FranklinBi last night from our days at @jpmorgan.

Seriously such an incredible community – serendipity and genuine connection without any transactional feeling. Highly recommend to anyone with a startup itch.

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.

Amiran Yaghout

You have to apply and get in but the @beondeck fellowship (ODF) Slack is the closest I've come to living in the future. If you are thinking of starting a startup or are pretty early stage, there's no community where you'll learn more.

Luba Yudasina

One of the best decisions of the last 2 years was joining @beondeck. So grateful to witness their growth first hand ❤️

Thank you @eriktorenberg and @david__booth for building something this special!

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:

Peer to Peer

Our 8- to 10-week-long virtual fellowships 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!

For All Identities

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. It’s like walking into a party where everyone is single. FUN.

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 at On Deck
