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.

Louis Pereira

The @beondeck Writer Fellowship was so good that I needed a second helping.

Thrilled to be joining their #NoCode fellowship next month.

It's time to build!

Nick Singh

On Deck helped me realize that writing was a viable career. As a Software Engineer in SV, thought founding a tech startup was the only path. Then ODF1 happened.

12 months later, and I got a book on the way & a newsletter with 44k subscribers. Big fans of @david__booth & team!

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.

Brett Goldstein

Since starting @beondeck, I've been happier and more creatively fulfilled than at any other point in my career (my mood tracking data shows it).

This community is magic. Momentum is a hell of a drug.

My DMs are open if you're thinking about applying!

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.

Kennedy McDaniel

A lot of starting and growing a company is growing yourself.

I joined the @beondeck Fellowship (Cohort 3!) in March and have spent the last 1 month achieving what should have taken 4-5 months.

Anuj Abrol

Been thinking about the On Deck (@beondeck) team

They’re building an unstoppable startup machine

Monopoly on up and coming founders, talent, and investors 🔥

Marissa Goldberg

The @beondeck fellowship is the most optimized environment for finding cofounders.

Jordi Hays

Two days into @beondeck ODF4 and it’s already very clear the next 8 weeks will be very special.

The value of an MBA, a fraction of the cost, and 10X as fun. Bravo @eriktorenberg @david__booth and company.

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.

Nathan Baschez

The network you get from it is kinda like joining a great company full of super talented people —except you skip the step where you're working on someone else's business, and proceed straight to the "mafia" phase!

Griffin Johnson

@eriktorenberg is going to be responsible for more job placements than anyone else in the world. @beondeck is a game changer

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.

Joey DeBruin

Not only is community the new scarcity, it's absolutely a cold-start problem. Before @beondeck, I hated "networking." After, I have the opposite problem: too many genuinely energy-adding connections which keep branching out into more.

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
