Need to find a cofounder? Welcome to On Deck 🚀

Australia isn’t Silicon Valley.

The streets aren’t packed with world class technical talent desperate to build the future.

So trying to find a cofounder can be frustrating.

Your friends are happy with their corporate jobs and look forward to the weekends.

You want to look forward to the weekdays.

You’re ambitious, you crave intensity, and you know there’s never been a better time to start a company.

Introducing On Deck…

What started as a series of small dinners three years ago in San Francisco has blossomed into a global network of over 70 events in 12 cities, a community of 3,000+ past attendees who have founded ~25 companies (that we are aware of) with people they met at events — including Voiceops, Carrot, Spring Labs, Tia, Modern Fertility, and raised upwards of $50M.

On Deckers have connected with co-founders, investors, and first hires — and helped countless others by making introductions, brainstorming ideas, and being a sounding board through the process of starting up.

…and immediately recognised a way to build a community of like-minded people in my new home town.

Fast forward a year and On Deck Australia is officially off the ground. We’ve hosted dinners in Sydney and Melbourne and already have a community of hundreds of repeat founders, designers and developers looking to start their next thing.
