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.

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!

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.

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.”

#ODW1

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.

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!

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.

Anthony McGuire

Highly recommend that people apply to the On Deck Writer Fellowship! It has been a gamechanger for me--one of the best programs in the world!

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.

Parthi Loganathan

Excited for @beondeck's writer fellowship kickoff today! Did the original fellowship and here I am again as a repeat customer.

They're building the best communities for every niche.

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!

Dan Stern

The kickoff for @beondeck ODW1 was the best onboarding experience I've ever had.

Huge props to @eriktorenberg and @maxnuss and team for making 3 hrs of zoom actually enjoyable

Meeta Sharma

Choosing to be a part of #ODW1 was easily the best decision of this year. I found a group of people who are invested in each other's growth and the growth of the creator ecosystem at large. Cannot recommend it enough.

Gale Wilkinson

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

Mike MacCombie

The quality of ODF companies that pitched today were fantastic - congrats to the whole @beondeck team for putting together that demo day.

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!

Van Nguyen

Life after @beondeck is crazy good! The network is so powerful. @Auroreserete’s ODF cohort hasn’t even started yet and despite that she has helped me connect with 4 potential customers in completely new/different markets in record time. Thank you!

Anna Nasr

@beondeck enabled me to work with incredible founders, helped me discover my product idea--and, through an On Deck fellow--got me my first pre-seed funding. I can't articulate how amazing the On Deck network is and what a positive force it's been in my life. Apply!

Marissa Goldberg

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

Sneh Ganjoo

Midway through ODF & every time I attend a session or interact with the community I have the same excitement as Day 0. I wish all founder communities were like this.

I have never seen a community that translates the true essence of business & ideas beyond borders before @beondeck

Madison Campbell

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

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.

Shachin Bharadwaj

Is there anything called binge slacking!?

Hooked to slack since last night reading about all the AMAZING people who are part of @beondeck #ODF7 - looking forward to the kickoff tonight @julianweisser @eriktorenberg

Amazing energy in the group!

Kai Faust

I’m **very** impressed with @beondeck’s Founder Fellowship. It’s super well run. The entire experience has been smooth, valuable, and fun. Clearly a lot of work goes into running this operation.

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.

Sunil Rajaraman

I'm decently networked in tech. But I joined @beondeck on the advice of @hnshah and @tylerwillis. I learned that networks need refreshing.

On Deck opened me up to a new set of amazing people I will invest in, be friends with, and follow for life.

Kevin Huang

Online education will evolve to become more social.

@beondeck is a prime example. It is, without a doubt, one of the most transformative learning experiences I've had in my adult life.

I am very grateful for being a part of this community.

Tyler Willis

Did I invest in @beondeck? Yes.

Why? Look at this deck.

Every physical institution is being rebuilt in the cloud. This is the MBA, the meetup, and the hackathon all rolled into one.

It won’t be small.

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.

Jason Jacobs

I saw two ways to describe @beondeck yesterday, both of which struck a chord.

1) SV in the cloud

2) this generation’s “just do it”

I’m long @beondeck!

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.💕

Terry Xu

Joining On Deck is like getting 1000+ mentors, 1000+ thought partners, 1000+ accountability partners, and 1000+ followers instantly.

It's too good to be true, but it's true.

2021 will be the year where On Deck becomes known to all new entrepreneurs.

Michael Houck

Pre @beondeck: Vague ideas + working alone + unclear paths forward

Post @beondeck: More defined ideas than I have time for + 2 cofounders who love to hustle + a growing, unique business

Brian Bagdasarian

The @beondeck experience is one that you could only get if you were on the inside of Silicon Valley previously.

Community + insight + vision + a ton of amazing people with amazing ideas.

Griff Foxley

Will @beondeck please just right now setup an annual pass type thing so I can just be apart of every damn thing they offer?

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 🔥

Robbie Crabtree

Huge news...

@beondeck has acquired Performative Speaking to help supercharge the storytelling and communication capabilities of their founders and fellows.

Beyond excited to join this rocket ship and thank you to @david__booth @eriktorenberg @julianweisser and the whole team!

KP

Today is my 1st day at @beondeck where I’ll be leading the new no-code fellowship program.

Can’t wait to help builders unleash their creative potential and turn ideas into tangible products using no-code tools 🛠

I’m grateful I’ll be serving an already amazing community.

Laís de Oliveira

Thrilled to start the first working day of the year joining the @beondeck team as Program Director of the Community Builders Fellowship. 🚀🥂 #HappyNewYear

Melissa Joy Kong

I started running my own business five years ago, and said I’d never work for a company again unless it was truly special.

I found a truly special one.

Thrilled to be joining the amazing @beondeck team to lead marketing & communications!

Julian Weisser

2 years ago today I was hosting 5 @beondeck events / month (+ had a full-time job)

No revenue, no team, but a community brimming with potential.

Who'd have thought 2 years later we'd be

1) an actual company

2) rapidly growing team of 60

3) millions in revenue

4) decent logo

Lauren Hoffman

*Joins the @beondeck team, sends first tweet*

(but actually - couldn't be more excited about what we're building here 😊🎉)

Regina Gerbeaux

TODAY: the 7th batch of @beondeck Founder Fellowship kicked off 🔥 AND the 1st batch of the On Deck Writers Fellowship wrapped up 🎓

It's like simultaneously watching eggs hatch while also watching birds fly away from the nest. My heart is so full.

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!

Miguel Solano

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

Katherine Lynn

I continue to be impressed with the overall program, caliber of fellows, and the ODF employees! (Plus some sweet music playlists during events and I got to practice rap w/ @eriktorenberg during kickoff.)

Happy to be in ODF5!

Chris Horne

Just over halfway through my @beondeck fellowship experience and might as well say: joining is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Everyone is AMAZING, friendly, and EXTREMELY helpful. The talks are tactical and directly applicable. Nothing but ❤️

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.

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.

Quintin Woods

Founders 🤝 Angels

Instead of sticking all your money in a 1% yield savings account, invest in the future. @beondeck is the best place to do that!

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.

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.

Crystal Chan

@beondeck for me has been friends, confidants, experts, and advisors all bundled in one amazing community of people.

It’s the vibe of childhood play groups, late night talks, college discussions, weekend hackathons, and so much more.

No better way to step into 2021.

Dom Potter

For me @beondeck is so exciting because it is becoming a platform for bundling of the many strands of identity of ambitious people who want to change the world.

Harvey Multani

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

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.

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 🚀

Hiten Shah

I had a blast chatting with the @beondeck community earlier today.

They were super engaged, thoughtful and curious.

I say no to most things, this group (virtually like today and in-person) is something special in a weird, unexplainable but awesome way.

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.

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.

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!

Mckay Wrigley

Last “official” @beondeck day tomorrow - I highly recommend applying for a cohort.

There are programs for anyone from founders to investors to writers to podcasters and more.

On Deck puts out great programs, you’ll connect with amazing people, and community workshops are A+.

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.

Madison Kanna

Joining the @beondeck community was one of the highlights of my year!

Grateful to be apart of it and excited for 2021 🚀

Ellie Howard

Just had the nth conversation with a fellow ODFer who feels, like me, that @beondeck has meant they've finally found 'their people'. @david__booth @eriktorenberg @julianweisser and the team are alchemists ✨#ODF7

Max Greenwald

Masterclass in launching & iterating: @eriktorenberg, @david__booth, @btaleisnik and the @beondeck crew.

Something wild being announced every week it seems. Incredibly hard to launch & iterate on community too. By doing it with humbleness and transparency they are crushing it.

Peter Yang

In all seriousness, I think quality cohort based programs like @beondeck are already starting to disrupt business school.

Manar

The power of @beondeck - sent in a question about dealing with a difficult personal situation. Within 20 minutes, 4 people offered to share their personal stories in depth and 2 offered general perspective.

Terry Xu

HOOOOOOOLY! The @beondeck kick-off event is beyond my wildest imagination on how an online community can be run.

Vartika Manasvi

Join @beondeck for its 3Cs formula —> Community + Character + Culture

All of that is very practical, generosity of its members is real, serendipity is digital, connections are meaningful and all friendships are very humane!

This is best ‘Give First’ culture on the internet.

Bocar Dia

Two words review of @beondeck: AMAZING EXPERIENCE 🙌. And a prediction: it will become the default place entrepreneurs go (back) to throughout their career to start/explore what's next. Life is too short to wing it when there is already a place to find amazing folks to work with.

Coco Liu

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

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

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!

Wallace Torres

My On Deck journey:

- A community of incredible entrepreneurs all who can switch between emotional support and strategic guidance depending on what you need that moment

- What LinkedIn is supposed to be

- Exposure to lots of company building perspectives

Can’t recommend enough.

Griffin Johnson

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

Kai Faust

My experience with On Deck in 2020:

- Several deep friendships and that I expect to last a lifetime.

- Warm intros to customers, talent and advisors.

- Access to capital (Raised $100K+ during ODF6)

- $20K+ in perks (AWS, DocSend, and more)

I kinda feel like crying. So grateful.

Mindaugas Petrutis

Week 1 @beondeck done. Let's just say my excitement has gone up 10 fold now that I'm on the inside, we haven't even scratched the surface yet of what this will become.

Melissa Joy Kong

Not even a full week in at @beondeck, and I’m already completely obsessed with my team. Such a brilliant, thoughtful, get-things-done-at-an-insane-pace group of humans.

Miguel Solano

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