  • Who gets selected?

    We look for people with:

    Inner drive

    You're a self-starter and can motivate yourself and others to join your mission. You set high goals and have proven to achieve them.

    A clear spike

    That strong attribute which enables your skills and experiences to stand out from the crowd. You have deep knowledge in an area where you can form a foundation of your company's competitive advantage.


    Your source of energy never runs low. You always find a window when the door closes. You have the willingness and ability to keep going when you're faced with obstacles.

  • What's the selection process?

    Questionnaire and/or Screening call​: Some candidates will be invited to respond to a quick questionnaire and/or a quick screening call to get to know you better. During this stage, we will learn more about your passions, ambitions and overall drive and values.

    Problem solving test: ​After we have had the chance to look into your questionnaire or done a phone screen with one of us, you will be invited to do a quick 20 minutes test. The test gives us an overview of your quantitative and logical reasoning as well as problem-solving skills.

    Final interviews:​ Once you’ve made it to this stage, you will meet with the Antler team. During two 40 minutes interviews, the team will assess you on the dimensions mentioned above, drive, problem-solving skills and spike. To prepare for this step, it's helpful to think through the previous roles and experiences that helped shape your career so far. In particular, we're interested in learning more about specific examples where you were faced with difficult challenges and how you resolved them.

    Offer:​ Your journey begins once you have accepted the offer – welcome to the Antler family!

  • Can I apply to several locations?

    Yes, you can apply to any region and you can apply to multiple regions using the same application form. Be open with us in the application process if you're considering several locations, we will discuss with you during the screen call what the best option would be for you.

  • What is the Antler 6 month program like?

    The program is divided in two phases. The first phase is dedicated to finding a co-founder, validating ideas and starting to build your business. The second phase, after Antler investment, is an acceleration track where you will use Antler funding to get enough traction to raise your seed round. Throughout the program we offer office space, a personal mentor from our team as well as presentations with external speakers and connection to our​ global network.
