The Antler experience - Get from zero to seed

Through our 6 month program, we’ll help you build your company from scratch, match you up with experienced co-founders and provide you with a network of successful coaches and advisors, as well as capital and support. Our cohorts are a full-time commitment. 

The first 10 weeks (Phase One) are dedicated to helping you find a co-founder and validate your idea. It’s a mix of designated networking time, team challenges, workshops, and mentoring sessions. You are surrounded by other successful serial entrepreneurs and advisors. It is an intense but rewarding stage in your entrepreneurial journey. In the end, you and your co-founder(s) will pitch to Antler’s Investment Committee for your pre-seed investment. 

The teams that get the investment will continue their journey with Antler for another 4 months (Phase Two). This is an acceleration track where the focus is on building the MVP, acquiring customers, and generating revenue. Towards the end of the 6-month program, we will work with you on preparing your fundraising strategy and growth roadmap, introduce you to our vast global network of investors so you get the opportunity to pitch to local and international investors in order to raise investment for your next round of funding. We build a long term relationship with our founders and stay involved as a partner for the long term. 

Programs are run in person, online, or in a hybrid format depending on the location.
