We created Antler to unlock the potential of people like you so that you can concentrate all your efforts on building a world-changing company. We thrive to support brilliant and ambitious entrepreneurs, regardless of their background and nationality, to unlock their full potential and work on addressing global challenges.
How do we do it?
- We bring together exceptional people and support them in building their startup from day one.
- You go from zero to seed in six months in a low-risk environment: we pay you a generous grant to commit full time to build a business that will fundamentally improve the world.
- We support you in finding a co-founder, whether a domain leader, business partner or both, with whom you’ll be on equal footing.
- We are industry agnostic!
What to expect?
- Phase One: Team Formation and Problem Validation
The 10 first weeks of the program are designed for you to team up with co-founder(s), ideate on a problem you wish to solve and validate your business model. The schedule is intense, full of lectures and workshops with industry experts, team challenges, idea sprints and coaching sessions.
- Investment Committee (IC)
At the end of Phase One, you will pitch your idea to our investment committee composed of partners from the local and global Antler partners, as well as external local investors. IC decides which teams get investment and continue to Phase Two.
- Phase Two: Company Building
The second phase of the program focuses on building your MVP, securing traction and developing a fundraising strategy. You will grow your business with support from the Antler network and dedicated coaching sessions from advisors. The whole Antler team will be dedicated to prepare you to pitch your idea to investors, accelerators and industry leaders as you go on to raise further investments.
