Antenna Nottingham meeting room

Guess what, we’ve only gone and been shortlisted for this year’s Hustle Awards 2022!

The Hustle Awards celebrate startups, teams and founders, showcasing all of the amazing work they do. Award categories range from ‘Founder of the Year’, to ‘Mentor of the Moment’, ‘Green Award’, ‘Outstanding Startup Supporter’ and lots more.

The ‘Workspace of the Year‘ award recognises organisations, like our own, that provide value-added services to the startup community, supporting them to grow and thrive.

We’re particularly proud as many of our dedicated community of members and tenants came forward to provide lovely testimonials attesting to why we should receive the award, here’s a word from just a few of them:

Jim Hindson – Director of The Cricketer Publishing Limited – Virtual Tenant

“Antenna rocks in the workspace world. From the warm welcome on reception, through to the eye-catching corridor art that leads to dedicated workspaces boasting omnipresent superfast Wi-Fi. With fantastic hospitality to boot Antenna is cool-coworking.”

Sara Bodinar, Freelance Writer – Member

“Antenna was my refuge during the pandemic. I felt safe there, thanks to all the precautions taken. But I’d expect no less from this exceptional workplace. I’ve been a member there for many years. There’s always a lively, productive, friendly, and inclusive vibe, you never know who you’re going to meet there, or what unexpected opportunities might come your way as the day starts.”

Mick Walker, Creative Director at Boxset Media Ltd. – Virtual Tenant

“Antenna is at the heart of the creative industries in Nottingham. As a video production business, it’s essential for us to be at the centre of this. The facilities it offers in terms of meeting spaces, events, and of course, the café bar are unrivalled in the Creative Quarter.

“There is such a broad range of creative individuals and businesses at Antenna it’s impossible not to be inspired while you’re there! The atmosphere is inclusive and supportive too, so we can’t think of anywhere better for a creative business to grow and flourish!

“We were excited when Antenna opened its doors again in September. The opportunities it provides businesses like us are unrivalled, and at times like these, the networking opportunities and support Antenna offers are needed more than ever.”

Andy Afford, MD at STENCIL Creative Agency – Tenant

“It is, quite simply, a brilliant place to be and to work. The staff couldn’t be more friendly or supportive. The space is immaculately maintained and the shared spaces – from the cafe-bar to the breakout spots – are perfect. Our clients love coming to see us. And, on a personal level, I love the ‘drip coffee’. It’s as good as anywhere in the States!”
