The Launch Academy accelerated my startup journey, providing a manual to turn an idea into reality. I grew my network, met a co-founder in the Academy and we built an MVP to test our idea.

I joined the Launch Academy to get to know Antler. Accessing their core content and views on what makes a VC backable business gave me a head start before applying to join. Since, I was accepted to join full time, found my co-founders and received a $100K investment within 10 weeks. Game-changing!
I had been looking to make a transition to startups and through the Launch Academy, I landed a marketing role with an Antler portfolio company. This experience has provided a great learning ground as I explore my own startup.
