Stena Recycling LAB will be a Growth Partner of Antler for a year starting 19th August 2020. Antler identifies, develops and invests in exceptional people who build companies across sectors, industries and geographies.
Antler's idea is to get aspiring entrepreneurs from around the world to apply to join one of Antler’s programs to meet Co-founders and build and scale their business ideas.
The program handles over 50,000 applications per year, where 1500 entrepreneurs are accepted. One third of the accepted applicants recieve investment with over 125 portfolio companies supported long term.
Antler's nordic section has generated 41 new companies since January 2019 with a majority having females as one of the founders.
Antler has been driving the initiative - Restart the Future, since September 2020. Restart the Future is a mission together with a highly curated list of companies, organizations and individuals where the aim is to increase the number of new scalable companies in Sweden by 50% and inspire 1 million people to take part in the cause.
Stena Recycling LABs participation as a Growth Partner is to help focus on sustainable material use at Restart the Future.
