SaaS, FinTech, HealthTech, EduTech & more -- Introducing, Antler's latest investments out of Sydney
Last week, Antler held a virtual Demo Day in Sydney, live streamed to almost 1,600 people around the world, off the back of more than 2,000 registrations.
The turnout, amid Zoom fatigue and COVID restrictions, was a great indicator, showing that the global investment community sees the value and impact of what Antler is doing, and the strength of its portfolio companies.
The Australian arm of the global firm now has almost 40 companies in its local portfolio alone, and more than 250 globally.
The event took place in Pinstripe Media’s ausbiz studio in Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct, and through Antler’s purpose built event page, the audience was able to ask questions to the founders live, and express their interest to engage further with each team following the event.
From 1,400 applications, 99 founders were selected to join Antler in Sydney in June. These exceptional individuals then formed 26 teams, of which Antler invested in 13 of them spanning SaaS to FinTech, HealthTech, Future of Work, EduTech, and more.
On the night, the VC revealed these 13 companies.
It comes after a huge 14 months for Antler Sydney, having raised it first $46 million fund, investing in approximately 40 companies, and 80% of the portfolio having raised angel or VC funding within 6 months of Antler’s investment.
