The Benefits of Membership
Transformational Learning Experiences
Our learning experiences are uniquely transformational. We work hand-in-hand with mentors from top tech companies like Netflix, Google, and Stripe to create curriculum that is highly practical, tangible and actually prepares you for the job.
Choose from live, cohort-based Sprints that span 5-7 weeks (part-time) or on-demand, self-paced Micro Sprints to tackle highly-specific skills. Everything is online and all learning experiences are interactive, so you build meaningful relationships with mentors & peers in the process.
Explore all learning experiences
“The learning experiences are hyper-practical, build to help you deliver more impact, immediately; regardless of your current industry.
My Sprint helped me think through business problems in new ways and I still join learning sessions regularly as part of the vibrant community.”
HIGHLY ENGAGED COMMUNITY AND A POWERFUL NETWORK
Community is not just a buzzword here. Our digital community is highly curated and hyper-engaged. We are proud of our industry-crushing engagement rates, and we cultivate them by seeding discussions, curating connections, on-going online and in-person events, new initiatives, 1:1 peer mentoring, and a really cool leaderboard to track it all!
Our members join geo-groups to meet others in their cities. We organize in-person events and casual meetups in key cities across North America and Europe so you can continue the conversation offline.
WEEKLY Workshops, Speaker Series, Office Hours
We host weekly events that are tailored to building you up as a business generalist. This is a way for you to continue learning, while engaging in the community. Our events range from tactical workshops led by mentors to speaker series with amazing operators, founders and funders, and intimate office hours with mentors and notable alumni. The majority of our events are virtual, but we do host in-person meetups too!

1:1 Coaching WITH MENTORS AND CURATED PEERS
Our curated roster of mentors from top tech companies offer exclusive, discounted 1:1 coaching for members of The Commons. Book time with them directly and get personalized guidance on everything from how to tackle a project at work to interview prep.
You can also get 1:1 peer mentoring from select alumni, for free. Our alumni appreciate how much they’ve gained from The Commons and want to give back.
“Just wanted to give a gratitude shoutout this evening to The Commons mentor, Julia B., who inspired a lot of confidence in me at the beginning and throughout my Sprint, and also to Rohan S. for leading the Circle on structured thinking and giving guidance on a case study I worked on in my recent interview process. Both of their influences, and also everything I learned in my Sprint, helped me land two BizOps job offers in the industry I was most interested in 😃 So grateful for this community!”
Live learning groups
Members get unlimited access to small, live learning groups called Circles. Circles meet on a bi-weekly basis to learn about a specific topic, together. We launch 2-3 new Circles per month - they always fill up quickly! A sample of prior topics include:
Knowledge hub & EXCLUSIVE JOB BOARD
Tap into the minds of The Commons mentors and alums through our private Knowledge Hub. We take the best advice, frameworks, and thought leadership from the community and package it up into digestible resources. The Knowledge Hub is constantly updated as a living representation of this community's value.
Our community provides exclusive access to amazing job opportunities. Mentors are often hiring onto their teams, and our alums work at amazing companies. New jobs are constantly being celebrated in the community - members typically land them from a community connection, referral or direct intro to the hiring team.
