On today's show it's my pleasure to welcome Norwegian entrepreneur Magnus Grimeland, the ex-Navy Seal and Harvard graduate who's co-founded Antler, a Global Startup-Generator, who's mission is to turn the world's top talent into great founders of great companies.
Well, if you're a regular listener to the show you know that it takes a lot to blow me away when it comes to new businesses, new ideas and new people.
But the interview you're about to hear with Magnus was one of those occasions.
I genuinely think that this business, with Magnus driving it alongside his incredibly talented team, has the potential to change the world in the same way that Air bnb, Uber or even Apple has done.
My twenty minute chat turned into a 60 minute conversation - and it's 100% worth your time to listen all the way through on this one.
This is for you if you're looking to launch a successful tech business and have spike, drive and tenacity but aren't sure where to start - or with who. If you're looking for an upwardly mobile organisation to work for, or have bags of experience helping startup businesses and want to give back, or an investor looking for the biggest opportunity this side of our solar system.
Magnus left a successful career in retail to identify and nurture the next generation of game-changing startup companies. Founded in 2017 Antler have painstakingly researched the best practices from the world's foremost VC's, Universities and Accelerator's and picked the best elements from all of these communities to form Antler - a Startup Generator.
Antler's revolutionary process sources the most promising talent and puts them together to co-found businesses the will own and run and provide them with access to the mentoring and funding they will need to succeed.
Their first cohort graduated in Singapore in 2018 and Antler have gone on to build 47 companies and establish further cohorts in Stockholm, Oslo, Sydney, Amsterdam and London - with Nairobi and New York to follow.
