Antler’s program provides founders with funding from day one, access to a global network of advisors and a clear path to raising capital. You’ll find the right co-founder, have your ideas validated, and grow your startup to a point that normally take years to achieve.
All founders get a stipend of US$1,500 per month the first two months. Antler invests US$100,000 for a 20% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee.
After the investment, companies are required to pay a program fee of US$15,000 to cover the cost of the program. If you don’t get an investment, you don’t pay any program fee to Antler.
