  • Who gets selected?

    From experienced business operators to technologists and serial entrepreneurs, we work with skilled founders regardless of background or geography.

    The founders of our portfolio companies represent more than 70 nationalities. Nearly 40% of our startups have at least one female co-founder. 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 and fill out the initial form, you will hear from our recruiting team, who will suggest the next steps in the process based on your background. If you pass the initial stage, 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 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 in that location.

  • What is it like building a company with Antler?

    We know that with the right team, early product-market fit validation and pre-seed capital, the chances of building a successful startup increases significantly. We work closely with you on this from the start.

    Our platform is anchored on this philosophy, with variations at Antler locations around the world in terms of structure, industry focus, and who we work with.

    The way Antler works with founders varies from region to region some have a 6 months program, others have a more fluid version. Please refer to the specific location page for further information.
