About this Program
Anthology Ventures is an Angel-funded hybrid acceleration and incubation program for startup teams in South/North Eastern Europe. We make a fully customized plan to meet the Investment-Readiness needs of each team. We combine a 40-day clinic (no-obligation) with a longer incubation period (equity). We join your team as co-founders and work alongside you to define and meet your goals, leading to Investment (either by our own Angel shareholders, or outside investors, organizations, and funds).
How this works
Our program has two phases - Clinic and Residency.
The Clinic is an intense 40-day program that tests our chemistry and ability to work together. First, we identify 1-2 key addressable issues that can be tackled within a short time span - 40 days. And we help you get them done as we also test our chemistry. Although we expect (and offer) complete dedication to your project, this is a trial period and there is no obligation/financial or otherwise to continue.
The second phase - Residency - is more long-term. Based on 40-days of working together, we decide that we want a deeper relationship and can bring value to building your company. Here we refine the goals and work that needs to be done in order to reach Investment readiness, and specify a timeline. After that we join your team as co-founders in exchange for a small equity stake (4-7%).
We work with a combination of in-person and remote meetings. Because we are a digital studio, much of our contact especially in the 40-day clinic, will be virtual - hourly, daily, and weekly but we also have office hours two times a month in Sofia, Bulgaria for those who can attend.
