How do you apply?

If this sounds like an attractive opportunity for you and you match one of the three profiles above, we would love to invite you to apply to our program in Singapore through a simple online form.

In our assessments, we will be looking to see how you can apply your experience and have the aptitude to lead a company from 0 to 1. In interviews with our team, we’ll take a deep dive into your submission, career to date, and drive to build and scale a company.

You can either apply as an individual looking to launch a company or an existing business with a team looking to scale.

We need to know that the problem you are solving is big enough, that your business is scalable, and, that you and your team are a good fit for what you’re building. The rest we will help you with once you’re here, with us, in the program.

We have two programs kicking off soon in Singapore - our Antler Signature and Executive Programs will begin in September 2021.

If you’re ready to take a jump into entrepreneurship, apply to join Antler as a founder today.
