Antler expands  investment activity to also include Series C investments.


Antler has announced that it will expand its investment activity. Its primary focus remains pre-seed investment, but it also has the potential to provide follow-on capital to portfolio companies as they expand and scale up to Series C.

Magnus Grimeland, Founder & CEO at Antler, said “We continue to provide support for our founders from the earliest stages, and are thrilled to be able to continue investing in them as they grow. We look forward to backing even more entrepreneurs that are redefining industries in the future.”

Since 2018, Antler has invested in over 350 companies in over 30 industries worldwide. With 70 nationalities represented, 40% of these companies have at least one female co-founder. Antler has also expanded its scope and opened new locations in the last year, allowing it to help and invest in even more remarkable founders. Canada, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Korea are among the countries where Antler has opened offices.

Antler also plans to make seed and Series A investments in a number of companies outside of its portfolio. Martell Hardenberg, Co-Founder of Lazada; Teddy Himler, formerly of SoftBank; Stefan Jung, formerly Managing Partner at Venturra Capital; and Navi Singh, an Entrepreneur and Researcher at MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, make up the Antler Partners team overseeing the later stage investments.
