  • 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?

    Once you apply, you will hear from our recruiting team, who will suggest the next steps in the process based on your background. If you pass our initial checks, you will be invited for one or more interviews with our team so we can understand how we can help you to build your startup.

    Antler’s selection process varies from region to region after applicants apply online. Please refer to the specific location page for further clarification.

  • 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.

    If you apply for several locations, you will also need to make sure that you meet the local visa requirements.This is important as you will need to have full working rights to build a company with Antler.

  • What is it like building a company with Antler?

    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 team coach as well as presentations with external speakers and connection to our​ global network.
