From e27:

Startup generator and early-stage VC firm Antler has partnered with the National University of Singapore (NUS) via its Graduate Research Innovation Programme to launch an executive programme to enable more entrepreneurs to build successful deeptech startups.

Antler and NUS aim to enable and invest in around 30 deeptech startups annually through this joint initiative. They will provide founders with the support to form the right team, funding of up to $240,000 each, and access to their combined global advisory networks.

This programme allows talents to keep their current jobs while they explore finding the right partners and launching their new ventures. With Antler’s methodology, founders with software or deeptech skills will be matched to those with a business background, to create a strong founding team.
