We enable exceptional people to build the defining companies of tomorrow through an unrivaled network of experts and advisors. We have collected a massive global dataset to evaluate early-stage founder success and support our startups with data.
Bringing together people from different backgrounds is an important factor when finding exceptional individuals for our program. As a member of the recently launched #Fundright campaign, we have already reached a strong milestone by investing in 33% of companies that have at least one female co-founder, nearly meeting the 3 year benchmark.
The Antler program runs for 6 months starting November 2nd (with a two-week break over the December holiday).
Our cohorts are made from a wide variety of backgrounds and areas of expertise. Globally, Antler only accepts the top 2% of applicants and typically our founders have an average of 10 years of professional work experience.
All selected founders get a one time grant of €2,000. Plus an additional €1,000 if you require a startup visa. We invest €100,000 for a 12% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee. For all companies we select, €45,000 is used to cover the program fees, meaning you get €55,000 to begin building your dream company. Learn more by viewing our program details
