OnDeck is Deckstar’s platform to recruit, support and guide upcoming talent. Deckstar creates a stage for this talent to be able to develop themselves.
OnDeck is focussing on talent between the ages of 10 and 17.
OnDeck and/or Deckstar do not receive any form of government subsidy and that requires entrepreneurship. Therefore we will invest experience, time, energy, patience and our own financial resources into this development. Besides that, Deckstar will let these talents get acquainted with the entertainment branche in a responsible way.
