Is Antler a good alternative to starting your own company?

That depends. Entrepreneurs do need a lot of support and it's not easy to build a company. The antler ecosystem is great and the networking with high caliber people is top-notch. If you are looking for an experience that combines motivation top MBA compared with seasoned entrepreneurs such as myself, (feel free to add me on LinkedIn) I would suggest going for antler.

If you are happy to do everything yourself and you can take the loneliness of pushing a company out all on your own then antler may not be the right fit at all. Think carefully about what you are trying to achieve and what sector your in. Is it SAAS, Hardwear or something else? Look for investors that can tailor your needs carefully.

An accelerator will not make your company

It's you who has to do it and build it. An accelerator will help give you ideas but will NOT make a company. Some people will get luckier than others in every aspect because building a company is about being at the right place at the right time. I've seen brilliant founders out there with great ideas just at the wrong time. It is also about luck and don't forget it.
