We are on a mission to fundamentally improve the world by enabling and investing in the world's most exceptional people who are building the defining companies of tomorrow.

ESG stands for environmental, social, and governance which are a set of criteria used to measure an investment’s sustainability and societal impact. Read our take on ESG from the VC perspective.

Social impact on a global scale

The opportunities to positively impact the world are greater than ever and it is important to have exceptional people build groundbreaking technology companies. At Antler, we help these entrepreneurs make a lasting global impact by supporting and investing in them. Through our portfolio companies, we make meaningful contributions to GDP and job growth in those regions as well as empower a diverse set of entrepreneurs. As a result, we help:

  • Bolster the economy and employment

    We build and invest in 1,500 companies per year, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs on an annual basis.

  • Reskill the labor force

    Starting a company is hard and requires new skill sets and a change in mindset. We help entrepreneurs with this transition.

  • Democratize entrepreneurship

    We work with the world’s best founders regardless of background or geography.

We have set ambitious targets for 2025

Having a positive impact on a global scale is very important to us and our portfolio companies. We're already on the path to achieve this.
