Where are you in your startup journey?
The Antler India Residency
Build for the world, from India.
Student founder? Or looking to take the entrepreneurial leap? Or raising your first institutional capital? We want to be the first call you make. It is easy to get behind an accelerating force but we take pride in backing founders when there is little data available.
That’s not it. We will be on your side as a long term partner as your company grows.
Backed by the power and promise of institutional backing, we bring to the table - capital, community and connections so you have everything to build a global company from India.
In a market where every VC promises a true partnership, doing whatever it takes to make you win is our raison d'etre.

The people behind Antler India
We’re tech optimists, operators, and most importantly, founders. It takes a founder to understand what founders want from VCs. We’ve been through the good, the bad and the ugly of the entrepreneurial journey and want to help you with yours.
Hear from the founders we backed!
The Antler team feels like an extension of one’s own team. I have some experience raising money before, but this is unique to Antler. They don't see you as investors, you are like their own team.

Our track record, you ask?
As builders, we have founded companies in e-commerce, edtech, mobility, fintech, and web3, created products used by millions of people, hired early core teams, and raised capital across different stages.
As investors, we have looked at over 12000 startups in the last decade, and funded over 70 companies across various stages, sectors, and geographies. We have seen multiple companies go to IPO, delivered sizeable M&A outcomes and worked closely with nearly 40 startups in helping them raise further rounds of funding from some of the world’s marquee funds.

We are now accepting applications on a rolling basis. We will revert in 2 weeks.
The Antler India Platform
Offering a platform is table stakes right now but we are taking it to the next level by building the world’s largest early-stage investment platform where Capital meets Community meets Connections.
Build for Web3 with us
With a presence in 17 locations across 5 continents and a portfolio of over 400 companies, we are a decentralized platform at our core. And we believe that blockchain and crypto will be the building blocks of the impending decentralized future. We’re getting behind this unstoppable force and initiating a global call for applications from entrepreneurs building all things blockchain & web3. Having backed multiple web3 startups, invested in core blockchain protocols, and built developer ecosystems for web3 globally, we are gearing for this new era of the internet.
The Antler India Fellowship
We are on the mission of fueling entrepreneurship at the university level. The AIF gives no-strings-attached $20,000 to India’s brightest college students to turn their ideas into a business. Fellows have the freedom and space to experiment, iterate and build. They also have access to hands-on coaching facilitated by some of India’s top domain experts and mentors. Are you a student entrepreneur looking to propel your startup idea? Or know someone who’d be interested?
