About Antler:

Antler finds, enables, and invests in the next generation of founders who address the world’s greatest opportunities and challenges. Antler was started in 2017 in Singapore by McKinsey, Google, Spotify, Harvard, MIT and Stanford alumni who went on to found successful enterprises worldwide. We believe anyone with the right talent, drive and ambition can change the world. This summer, the first Antler program with ~65 talented and passionate founders has kicked off in Singapore, while the first European cohort launches in January 2019. We’re a growing team determined to make Antler a big success, initially in Singapore, then in Stockholm, and soon in more cities around the world!

The Opportunity:

The future rests in the hands of entrepreneurs. Antler and New Lab join forces to provide the perfect ecosystem for launching world-changing ventures. Antler’s global startup generator and early stage VC is accepting applications for their inaugural NY cohort, starting 9/23. Founded by an exceptionally strong team of serial entrepreneurs, and backed by Advisors like Andreas Ehn (employee number 2 and the first CTO at Spotify), Antler helps ambitious professionals build companies from the ground, removing the barriers to entrepreneurship. Antler provides hands-on support and access to its global network of advisors, giving cohort members a considerable advantage from day one of your entrepreneurial journey.

Antler's program backs individual founders, helps them find a co-founder, invests in them from day one, and stress tests their business ideas. Those accepted into the program will have two months to ideate, form teams, and pitch for the chance to earn a $100k pre-seed investment.

Selected founders get a $6,000 stipend for the first phase (9 weeks) to relocate to New York City. After nine weeks of team and business model building, we invest $100,000 for a 10% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee. After investing, Antler and New Lab work closely with all teams to rapidly launch and scale the business, as well as secure external funding. The program culminates with Demo Day; where teams secure funding from some of the world's preeminent angels and top institutional investors.

Ideal Candidates:

In each program we typically have around 30 different nationalities. On average, the founders have worked for nine years before starting their journey at Antler. In the selection process, we look for an inner drive, a clear spike, and grit.

Deadline to Apply: September 10
