Antler is the investor backing the world’s most driven founders, from day zero to greatness.
We obsess about making our founders successful
By developing each other, we build leaders that define the future
No excuses—own up and get it done
We are a meritocracy—the idea matters, not who had it
Move fast and deliver high-quality results
We can debate fiercely—but when the decision is made, we commit and execute
We set improbable goals and meet them
Any cent spent is spent on the right thing
It’s not a zero-sum game—when all give back, all receive more
