Build your next company with Antler UK

We are the world’s largest early-stage investment platform, enabling exceptional people to build the defining companies of tomorrow.

We help you get further than you thought possible

From day one, we provide an unrivalled ecosystem and expertise to support founders in building successful startups. We leverage our massive global dataset on early-stage founder success to evaluate and support exceptional people.

In the UK, we deliver a three-month cohort focussed on Venture Development, dedicated to helping you find a co-founder then developing and testing a startup hypothesis. At the end of this stage, your team may pitch to our Investment Committee. Successful teams will then enter the Antler portfolio and benefit from Launch, where support focuses on helping you build your product before raising further funds.

We know that diverse teams perform better than homogenous ones

Equal access to funding and opportunities is at the core of what we do. We strive to bring together founders from diverse backgrounds, gender and ethnicities to create the strongest co-founding teams possible. This is just the start of our journey and we are working on continuously improving our numbers.

    We deliver a three-month cohort focussed on Venture Development, followed by an Investment Committee. Those teams that receive funding will continue to be supported by Antler.

  • What you get

    Selected founders get a grant of £4,000 paid in two instalments during the first phase. We invest £120,000 for a 10% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee.

    For all companies we invest in, £40,000 is used to cover the program fees so you get £80,000 in the bank to start building the foundations of a great business.
