We identify and invest in exceptional people

We're a global startup generator and early-stage VC firm that builds groundbreaking technology companies.

Start having a real impact

At Antler, we believe that it is important to have exceptional people, regardless of their background and nationality, work on addressing large global opportunities and challenges. We help you find the right co-founder among 80-100 other carefully selected people who’ve made it through the application process to start building your company.

A community of founders

We help build strong co-founding teams

We help you find the right co-founder among 80–100 other carefully selected founders (industry experts, coders, hackers, experiences operators and more). We connect you with successful entrepreneurs from all over the world who help you succeed.

We invest in founders from day one

We look for people with inner drive, grit and what we call a “spike”, something they’re exceptionally good at. All participants get an individual grant from day one, and select teams get investment to kick-start their companies ten weeks into the program.

A startup program from zero to seed in 6 months

Joining Antler is a full-time commitment. Join without having a company, find your co-founder and start building from scratch with support from our global network. Select one of our cities, and get ready for a journey that will get you places you didn’t think was possible.
