“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 ventures.”
“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 $100K investment within 10 weeks. Game changing!”

"You can't go wrong by joining! You will learn, connect and genuinely have a good time. It provided a great experience and allowed me to practice essential skills. The fact that you can practice your pitch in front of the cohort and gain constructive feedback is amazing."
"The networking in the Launch Academy helped me take steps forward - another participant helped me with my software development strategy, in which I am hoping to bring on as an employee. I also brainstormed with another participant who had built a similar product to mine and have 2 immediate partnership opportunities."
"I was so happy to be a part of this amazing program with an inspiring community to learn from. Not only was the masterclass content helpful, but I experienced the power of a honest and helpful community to support me in pushing my idea forward - including everything from brainstorming to advice to volunteers for user testing. My favorite part was meeting like-minded entrepreneurs through weekly pair-ups and in-person meet ups!"
"I am thrilled to have completed the Antler Launch Academy alongside so many passionate people from all walks of life. The content is insightful and well organised by the Antler Team. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning how to build a startup from day 1 to a VC backable company, or are just interested in startups and early-stage investing. Thanks to Heath and Rebecca for leading us through the course."
"The Antler Launch Academy was incredibly motivating, covered a broad range of topics but also great depth of information. It was a fantastic networking opportunity and great exposure to a range of established founders."
Secure a spot on our waitlist now to gain early access to the Antler Launch Academy. We are working hard to bring you our startup playbook and will let you know when live in your country.
Join thousands of BOLD entrepreneurs, makers, doers & innovators that have already signed up.
We have built this course to be flexible around your schedule. We suggest watching the 8 masterclasses and attending the regular live Q&A sessions with the Antler team & founders. It is optional to join our community including digital meetups, Slack discussions and 'huddles' to work with other participants in the course. We also provide optional challenges to help you progress an idea.
Participating in the Launch Academy is not a pre-requisite, however, we believe joining before applying to Antler full-time can be helpful for you! The Launch Academy lets you get up to speed on some of our core content, provides insight into what building with us full-time will be like and we also provide tips on applying.
Once you are an active participant of the course, that's it - you are in! You can stay on our platform and have first access to new content and features we build. If you don't engage in the course once accepted, we will swap you out for someone else patiently waiting on our waitlist.
Yes that's why we are here! We are busily working away to bring you deep-dives on the most popular topics. Keep an eye for out new 'tracks' that will pop up on the platform shortly.
During this course we will provide a framework for generating startup ideas and encourage you to take on this challenge. If you do have an idea or startup, our investors will help you validate, grow and prepare for fundraising.
I promise we are friendly! Shoot an email to the creators of the Antler Launch Academy - email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org
