DEAR CREATORS, LET'S GET STARTED
“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!”
THE CAREER TRANSITIONERS
“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.”
MARKETING DIRECTOR, PREVIOUSLY L’OCCITANE
THE IDEA GENERATORS
