Today, power line inspections are carried out by manned helicopters and ground crews.

Antler is in the business of enabling the world's most exceptional people to build technology companies that solve real problems, and have a strong impact on the world. Last year we had the chance to start working with some truly amazing entrepreneurs; Wisnu Nugrahadi, Margana Mohamad and Dimas Pramudya. In only twelve months, they have built an incredibly fast growing company working with 150,000 agents across Indonesia.
Antler believes in bringing people with complementary skills together and providing them with a solid support system to ensure the best companies are formed through the program. Most startups fail because of the wrong founding team. Fundamentally, the foundation for starting a business on the right food is the core team and the skills they collectively bring together.
