    Antler Sweden welcomes individuals with or without an idea looking for a co-founder at the very early stage of their start-up journey. 

    During the first 12 weeks, the platform supports startups from inception, starting with team formation and business model validation, followed by an Investment Committee leading to 4 months of idea acceleration and scaling. 

    Founders receive a Venture Development stipend of a total of USD $1,500 pre-tax. Antler Sweden’s investment fixed terms include USD $110,000 for a 10% equity stake. Companies invested in are required to pay a service fee of USD $50,000.

Fundraising When Pregnant

Many women considering building a startup are worried about how to balance the demanding work of an entrepreneur with family planning. What happens when two life events coincide - fundraising and expecting a baby? Fundraising is challenging to begin with and women start in a playing field that is not leveled - in the EU, women create approximately a third of companies, however, the environment is still not conducive when it comes to accessing funds for female founders - female founders still only receive 2% of funding. 

What does this mean for those female entrepreneurs wanting to start or enlarge their families? How real is the ‘motherhood penalty'? We invited successful female entrepreneurs who did not want to postpone their family planning and decided to fundraise while expecting a baby, sharing their stories about challenges and successes.
