Accepted founders will be paid $5,000 for Phase 1 of the program, in two equal installments - at the beginning of the program and halfway through Phase 1. Following this ten week period in our ecosystem - directed towards team and business model building - our Investment Committee decides which ventures to invest in. We invest $200k, at a $2m post money cap SAFE, for a 10% equity stake in each company that is selected. Portfolio Companies that receive Antler investment pay a $65k program fee to help support the generator program for future founders.
After investing, Antler works closely with all teams to rapidly launch and scale the business, as well as secure external funding. The program culminates with Demo Day; where teams secure funding from some of the world's preeminent angels and top institutional investors.
Zoe Hall, Director of Marketing for the newly opened New York location, looks to fully communicate the advantages of Antler’s unique approach by sharing an illustrative encounter with Anna Ratala and Malik Alimoekhamedov, current co-founders of Zvook and Antler alumi.
