Who are we?

Antler is a startup generator and early stage VC that turns the world’s best talent into great founders of impactful technology companies. We find and enable the most dedicated technical and non-technical entrepreneurs, help them find the right co-founder and connect them to a mentor network of business and technical domain experts worldwide. 

Antler was started in 2017 in Singapore by Google, Spotify, McKinsey, Harvard, MIT and Stanford alumni who previously founded successful enterprises of their own around the world. We are an open-minded organisation with a diverse group of people. We have a fast-paced, fun working environment with an accessible hierarchy. We base our company on trust and ownership, and encourage all employees to speak up and forward their position when they believe something should be done differently. 

 

Antler diminishes the key barriers that prevent brilliant people from successfully starting their own venture: 

  1. No co-founder – 60% of startups fail because of wrong co-founder pairing. We work very actively with co-founder pairing and see it as one of the most important things we do. We select the top ~3% entrepreneurial talent & use the first month to support founders in meeting the right co-founders from a diverse cohort of industry, commercial and technology leaders.
  2. Difficulty to raise capital - We provide funding from day one via an initial monthly grant, pre-seed investment and a clear pathway to capital via connections to leading investors & VCs
  3. Lack of conviction in an idea – Founders go through a thorough problem and idea validation process; startups drive to first customer acquisition results with help of dedicated coaches
  4. Lack of advisory network - We provide hands-on support through an exceptional network of global and local advisors to give our founders an unfair advantage and all teams are invited to our alumni network and have direct access to other like-minded founders.

In the summer of 2018, the first Antler program launched in Singapore. Since then we have run programs in eight locations across four continents. To date, Antler has attracted ~20,000 applications to its programs globally. Of those applications, ~1,000 entrepreneurs have been accepted.

We are inviting applications for our 3rd Cohort which starts on November 2nd, 2020.
