Amsterdam - External Scout
This ad is not for a job, but rather for the opportunity to collaborate with Antler VC.
Are you an exceptional business leader, angel investor, startup founder, venture capitalist, ecosystem builder, or operator? Are you deeply involved with startups, innovations, and the tech ecosystem in the Benelux region? Do you have an extensive network and visibility in your target industry?
Then we are looking for you!
At Antler in the Benelux, we are building a network of Scouts, to help us discover and connect with the strongest Founders and early-stage startups in the region.
As a Venture Scout, you will support us in sourcing and connecting with strong Founders and early-stage startups from the pre-ideation stage (day 0) to the seed stage. It will be your role to identify the most exceptional people in your network and enable them to realize their potential by having them join our cohorts. This means understanding what makes an exceptional entrepreneur; drive, grit, and spike; understanding how Antler supports people through its ten-week cohorts; and understanding the performance of those entrepreneurs we’ve already backed to learn new signals.
Antler is a global early-stage Venture Capital Investor. We invest from the earliest possible stage (day- 0) pre-ideation, up to Series C.
As Day-0 investors, we invest in tech startups through direct investments as well as through our cohorts. Since we started in Singapore in 2017 we have grown globally to over 25 locations worldwide, have supported 5,000+ founders through our cohorts, and invested in 600+ startups.
