<aside> 💡 Antler is the global early-stage investor that gives experienced business operators, technologists, and serial entrepreneurs an unfair advantage in achieving greatness.

For each cohort, we receive more than 2,000 applications. We invite 300 - 400 individuals to interview before selecting 70 - 80 exceptional entrepreneurs to join our ten-week residency. Antler can back only the most driven founders due to our extensive due diligence process, starting when you apply. However, we know that exceptional founders come from anywhere and any background, so while this guide helps you understand the selection process, if you see yourself in some but not all of the characteristics and examples given, you should still apply.

Through unrivalled access to exceptional co-founders, a global community, and in-house, hands-on experts, we help driven people address meaningful problems that move the world forward. With a successful track record of investing in hundreds of companies and supporting thousands of entrepreneurs, we deliver the essential ingredients to build a high-growth business from day zero.

Our next cohort in the UK begins on September 2024. Below is a step-by-step overview of our selection process, which typically takes about 2-3 weeks. Therefore, we recommend applying as early as possible.

Read answers to the most frequently asked questions we receive. We expect all applicants to join us for an ask-me-anything session with one of our partners to learn more about how Antler works with founders.
