The Hustle Awards: Workspace of the Year

The Hustle Awards are back for 2024, and Startups Magazine is here to help you through the entry process.

The Hustle Awards are the networking event of the year – and are also the unrivalled badge of excellence and the benchmark for all startup businesses to aspire to.

Our mission is to:

  • Recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals, companies, and innovation
  • Raise standards across the sector, with a particular focus on diversity, inclusion, and sustainability
  • Inspire and celebrate the creative and entrepreneurial journey
  • Deliver a rigorous and transparent judging process with a panel of business leaders

So, with that in mind, we are here to help you decide on the best category for you. Next up: Workspace of the Year!

As with the Outstanding Startup Support category, we at Startups Magazine understand that there are a number of businesses and services that startups need along their business journey, and a workspace is definitely at the top of that list. Spending a lot of time at workspaces and co-working offices, these places are often a home away from home for many entrepreneurs.

These spaces do more than just give startups a place to work; they're the backdrop where ideas come to life, teamwork flourishes, and businesses grow. Celebrating these workspaces shines a light on how crucial they are for pushing businesses forward and keeping them strong across the industry.

Who is eligible for this award?

As the name suggests, this award is open to any workspace or co-working space that offers more than just a desk.

We're on the lookout for places that bring something extra to the table – the spots that are all about sparking creativity, getting people to work together, and building a sense of community.

When entering, please include background details about the workspace – who are they, and what do they provide?

Tell us why you should win

This isn’t the time to be humble, you need to be loud and proud and tell us why YOU should win this award.

When entering, outline why you are entering this award, and convince the judges that your entry should be considered. How have you innovated and differentiated yourself from the competition? What do you offer that the competition don’t? the judges want to know.

Provide evidence of how the workspace is going out the way to help startups and entrepreneurs, as well as the size and location of the workspace. How has this workspace provided benefits to startup companies?

Testimonials to back up your claims should be obtained from clients, partners, and industry figures, rather than employees of the organisation.

Supporting materials are highly recommended to help the judges make their decision. However, do be mindful of what supporting materials are used, as it’s limited to up to three images and one video link per entry.

Good luck!
