Global early-stage venture capital firm, Antler, in addition to its four startups from last year, has added two more startups for pre-seed investments.

The two startups were created during the firm’s second program in Kenya last year.

The program began in March 2020 over a period of six months with 30 individuals accepted from more than 1,800 applicants.

Over the first two months of the six-month program, these individuals formed 12 teams, and Antler has now announced the two teams that have formed fully-fledged startups and received a pre-seed investment of US$100,000.

The first of these companies is Cooked, a meal kit provider that uses innovative technology to transform the way consumers search for, shop for, and cook food at home. Cooked is an on-demand and subscription-based meal kit company that offers new and varying recipes with pre-measured, perfectly portioned ingredients sourced directly from suppliers leading to reduced food waste delivered straight to your home.

The second company is Uncover, a “one-stop-shop for skincare”, availing knowledge and products from Korea to revolutionize the skincare experience in Africa.

Launched in May 2019, Antler is known for bringing exceptional individuals from across the world together and connecting them to advisors and experts to help them launch their businesses through their six months training program.
