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.

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.

Lyle McKeany

It's not an overstatement to say that @beondeck has changed the trajectory of my writing life. I know that sounds hyperbolic, but it's not.

If you want to start writing, hold yourself accountable to a regular writing practice, or level up your writing, don't hesitate.

Kevin David

On Deck is going to be huge!

Thanks for letting me in when I was exploring what next after my stint at @AngelList.

Joined @beondeck in June 2020, met my co-founders in August, raised a seed round late last year. Team of 11 now, building a MVP with a few creators.

Harvey Multani

@beondeck will do for human capital what @AngelList did for financial capital

Aashni Shah

I'm in @beondeck #ODF4 for the last few weeks and it's easily the best decision I've ever made. It's a perfect combination of what I love about school - fun, engaging, incredible community and lots of valuable knowledge without the tests.

Plus the community is so so helpful!

David Lobo

@beondeck is the most impactful community I've ever been involved with. It's the launchpad that has allowed me move faster every day. So thankful for their badass team.

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.”

Carri Craver

The ODNC Slack is true mind boggling goodness. My expectations were sky high and it is better than I imagined.

The last time I felt this in awe I was standing on a mountaintop after a 2 day climb.

Matt Alston

The two best decisions I made in 2020 were leaving my job to start a company with @MelissaZhang13, and joining @beondeck.

Pretty wild how much On Deck has grown and evolved in just the last 6 months. Can’t event imagine what it’ll look like a year from now 🚀

Arwina Mogul

I have this theory that if I joined @beondeck sooner, I would've avoided many early-stage founder mistakes. I implore any early-stage founder to check out the fellowship. It will extend your financial, emotional, and mental runway.

Alexander Hugh Sam

Just finished the @beondeck kick-off session for ODW1 and 🤯.

It's the most fun I've ever had for any onboarding whatsoever. The team and fellows are amazing and can't wait to get started.

Even did some (very bad) freestyle rapping and met cool people like @AnthonyMcG2!

Gale Wilkinson

Highly recommend @beondeck for angels and founders. I have learned a lot so far in their angel program.

Jackie Hyland

Yesterday was the last day of @beondeck cohort #4. I'm feeling so many things, but the main one is gratitude. I spent 10 weeks with some incredible humans who I feel are lifelong friends and collaborators.

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.

Everett Berry

When fundraising stopped cold and enterprise budgets froze in March 2020 i freaked tf out.

Luckily, as one of my favorite founders @mishkaorakzai said, "Silicon Valley moved to the cloud".

Forever grateful to the OD team and community for helping me meet the moment. #ODF3

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:

Deep Friendships

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!

Community Diversity

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 of the On Deck community.
