A long-term Partner
At Antler, we want to fundamentally improve the world by building and investing in the defining companies of the next decades. We deeply believe the founding team is the most crucial part of a company. We don't just invest in startup companies, we invest in people.
While we support founders from the get-go, we don't just provide a small investment - we want to be your partner for the long term.
We currently have funds supporting founders up to series C, and as our portfolio evolves, we aim to add later-stage funding, providing venture capital and resources to support you from pre-idea to IPO.
