Antler is a global startup generator and early-stage VC with a mission to turn exceptional individuals into great founders. In the latest development, Schroders, along with Johan H. Andresen’s Ferd, and other prominent investors have invested in the Singapore-based startup generator.
With this move, the new investors join an existing group of experienced entrepreneurs and industry leaders backing Antler, including Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, Canica International, and Credit Saison, the third-largest credit card issuer in Japan.
This latest investment takes the capital raised by Antler over the past six months to more than $75 million (approx €68 million). Antler, which runs startup generator programs and invests from an early-stage in the top 1-1.5% of entrepreneurs through its funds, has made more than 120 investments across a wide range of technology companies.
Since its launch in Singapore two years ago, Antler now has a presence across five continents, including New York, London, Singapore, Sydney, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Nairobi, and Oslo.
Magnus Grimeland, Antler co-founder and CEO:
We often talk about the opportunity to find your co-founder at Antler, through working with exceptional people from different professional backgrounds and with complementary skill sets. With our support, our founders start refining their ideas and building new and innovative
What is equally important is the deep relationship our founders build with their peers, our advisors, and backers. Having accomplished investors like Schroders, Ferd and FinTech Collective on board means we can provide a more valuable network for our startups as they grow their businesses.
