Antler is delighted to welcome Orson Stadler as a Partner who will be co-heading its London operation. Stadler formerly held the position of Senior Principal at Mustard Seed as well as being one of the first team members of the mpact venture capital fund.

Stadler began his career at global asset manager BlackRock, conceptualising and implementing global business and product strategy. He later joined as one of the first employees at  Mustard Seed, a leading European early-stage impact venture capital fund.

During his time at Mustard Seed, Orson was involved in all aspects of setting up the fund, including fundraising and deployment strategy, before leading investments in twelve notable European startups across six locations. These included co-investments with funds such as Seedcamp, SpeedInvest, InVenture, Octopus Ventures amongst others.

In his position as Partner, Stadler is keen to further Antler’s vision of aiming to fundamentally improve the world by providing world-class support to entrepreneurs right from the beginning of their journeys. 

Orson Stadler comments, "The London and European early-stage eco-systems are at a hugely exciting inflection point, with more top-quality investors and great companies being built than ever before. However, the support available to entrepreneurs at the start of their journeys remains under professionalised and non-transparent. It is Antler's mission to provide world-class entrepreneurs access to all the tools necessary from community, to capital, to knowledge to build transformational businesses, and it is my great privilege to be joining my incredibly intelligent, driven and ambitious colleagues in continuing this journey.”
