Antler is not just another Venture Capital fund
The future will be built by Founders, and we are here to help.
Antler is a 10 week, in person residency for you to launch your startup from scratch. We surround you with everything you need to build at lightning speed. A community of like-minded founders to build with.
Advice on the internet on how to build a startup is often more hurtful than helpful.
Each startup is different and has its own unique needs and priorities. Antler gives you access to real coaches who have built real companies that can help you every step of the way. We believe our founders should always decide what they want to build, we are here to help you figure out how to build it.
A global network at your fingertips, and most important, simple, straight forward funding.
We are building the future of Venture Capital for the next generation of founders.
Removing the barriers to entrepreneurship
From Day 1, we provide access to an unrivaled community of co-founders, a strong ecosystem network and expertise to support exceptional founders building the defining companies of tomorrow.
Having invested in hundreds of companies and worked with thousands of entrepreneurs, we know what works and what doesn't. This helps us better support our founders and help maximize their chances of success.

Antler Canada will launch its second residency on September 19, 2022
How it works
Antler Canada accepts applications from exceptional founders who are seeking a spot in our upcoming residency starting on September 19, 2022.
Note: We are nearing our cohort start date and applicants who are currently employed will need to give notice to their current employer. ONLY APPLY if you can join the residency starting on September 19th on a full-time basis on that date. Our next cohort will start in February 2023.
Our work with founders is divided into two phases.
In phase 1, participants receive a $3,000 stipend and will find their co-founder, build a VC-backable company which they will validate the potential for. The founders will then pitch to our internal Investment Committee for a pre-seed investment of $150,000 for 10% equity.
In phase 2, the co-founding teams which have received an investment at the end of phase 1 will build an MVP, get their first customers and we will support them as they look to secure external capital through a Demo Day as well as curated direct introductions to relevant angels and investors.
