🚀 About Antler

Antler is a global early-stage venture capital firm that invests in the defining technology companies of tomorrow. Antler is on a mission to fundamentally improve the world by identifying, investing in and challenging the world’s most exceptional people to build groundbreaking technology companies.

We believe anyone with the correct grit, spike, drive, and ambition can change the world. Antler is present in most major startup ecosystems across five continents, including New York, Toronto, London, Berlin, Bangalore, Singapore, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh, and Sydney. Since launching in 2017, we have invested in over 400 companies worldwide, and our portfolio represents over 30 different industries, such as healthtech, proptech, deeptech and fintech.

The aspiration for Antler is to be the world’s leading early-stage VC and a value-adding partner for exceptional founders from pre-idea to IPO.

💡 The Role

We are looking for an Associate for our operations in Iberia. The role is pivotal for our success, both in the region and globally, as finding high-quality founders is one of the most critical elements in our business as a Venture Capital fund. This role allows you to take personal responsibility for the leadership of our team and fund, which will have an incredible impact on founders' lives and the global innovation ecosystem. 

We are looking for a person with a very high level of business acumen to identify, attract and support the right talents for our startup generation program. We expect to have 3000 founder applicants a year. You will be the front line with working with the applicant on why they want to be founders, listening to and understanding the problem they want to solve, reviewing their business ideas, market size and why they want to be founders. Although no recruitment experience is necessary, you must be able to communicate and convince founders that Antler is the best place to start their companies, as the best founders we aim to find will have many other options. 

If you’re up for the challenge, we can promise an incredible experience, and an unparalleled opportunity to work with highly motivated individuals, accomplished entrepreneurs and the founders of future startup successes.
