We bring bright and determined people together to build great products that bring about change in the world. We provide an unrivaled ecosystem of expertise and door openers in the entire region. Over the next four years Antler aims to invest in over 200 new businesses born out of Amsterdam, creating thousands of new jobs.
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 first phase of the program will run 11 weeks from November to February, and the second phase of the program will run another three months from February to May.
COVID-19 Update: We fully plan to proceed with our third Amsterdam program start date of November 2.
As a contingency, we are prepared to deliver our program completely online if necessary and expect to provide the same level of support, interaction and expertise remotely as we would in a face-to-face setting.
During the first two months, all selected founders get a one time grant of €2,000. If you require a startup visa, you may claim an additional €1,000.
We invest €100,000 for a 12% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee. For all companies we invest in, €45,000 is used to cover the program fees so you get €55,000 in the bank to start building the foundations of a great business.
We then organize a demo day and additional fundraising events where your business will have the opportunity to pitch to hundreds of external investors for your seed funding round.
