With more than 60% of its population being below the age of 25 and housing the fastest growing economies in the world with an ever increasing adoption of tech, Africa is on the move and is ready for disruption!

Meanwhile, many of the world’s brightest minds are stuck creating gradual change for the world’s largest corporations. Making strategy slides, improving click-through rates by 0.1% or moving money. Not because they want to, but because of high opportunity costs and barriers to entry in tech. Therefore, today, most people don’t make a big impact on the world, and out of all the ideas that exist, only a fraction gets executed.

That being said, what if there was a way to unlock the power of the world’s most brilliant and determined to work on some of the greatest problems and opportunities of today? Are you ready to quit your job and start having a bigger impact? Do you have a strong tech or product background? Have you launched products that scaled? Are you a researcher or scientist with deep domain expertise in robotics or AI perhaps? Or, do you have deep business understanding?

At Antler, we give talented people that extra push to go from dreamer to doer. We believe that with the right talent, drive and resources great companies will be formed. We’ve been in your shoes and will support you throughout the journey to lower the risks and increase the chances of success. We will provide funding from day one, support you in finding the right co-founders and connect you to our top tier network of advisors and experts worldwide.
