On Deck venture capital fellowship
Join a high-trust network of top venture capitalists
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.
Join our Founding Fellows
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.
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 ODVC, you are probably:
* A Partner (or above) at an established fund.
* Keen to level up your knowledge and skills and build a strong network across geographies and categories.
* Eager to be an active participant in a growing community, as much of the value of On Deck comes from the network and peer-to-peer connections.
ODVC is not for people looking to break into Venture Capital. If you are interested in becoming an angel investor, please check out the On Deck Angel Fellowship.
ODVC fellows meet twice a week to share their knowledge, collaborate on urgent challenges and explore early theses. You get out what you put in: often, the biggest contributors are also the biggest beneficiaries.
Depending on your schedule and interests, you could choose to:
* Attend every single session
* Tune in at your leisure to attend sessions that interest you
Yes: ODVC 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.
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.
