We are a community of marketers.
We seek out new ways of thinking and doing.
We respect people’s talents.
We invest in their ambitions.
We learn, advance and succeed together.

We are Antenna.

Antenna gives companies a better way to make marketing work. We engage the hard-to-find experts and skills needed to win customers and build businesses—from product launches to marketing automation to organizational change.

We were founded on a simple belief. That real challenges deserve real solutions and real talent deserves real opportunity. By investing in real relationships with companies and consultants, we help everyone achieve more.

Based in Minneapolis, we operate at the hub of a vibrant and fast-moving community that includes Fortune 50 marketing organizations, ambitious startups and lots of inspiring companies in between.

We are honored to appear on distinguished lists year after year, including the “Inc. 5000"; Mpls-St. Paul Business Journal’s "Fast 50”, and “Minnesota’s Best Places to Work.” Through our Good Works program, our consultants are fighting hunger in the Twin Cities just by doing work they love. Learn more about the program.

Real works. It's more than words, it's our worldview.

Real talent

It’s not enough to look good on paper. Antenna brings experienced professionals who have proven themselves on demanding assignments in the real world.

Real matches

No cookie-cutter résumés here. We carefully align our people with our clients’ needs and culture and the kind of problems they want to solve. Everybody wins.

Real support

Free agents need love too. Our consultants get excellent benefits, ongoing education and tools to help them live and work happily and advance their careers.

Real challenges

Our consultants get inside our client’s business to help them take on big, important goals. That means exciting assignments and contributions that matter.

Real involvement

We engage meaningfully before, during and after each assignment to help our people see projects through and equip them to succeed, even as things change.

Real solutions

To tackle the complexity our clients face, we bring a spectrum of essential services, from team staffing to interim leadership, all tailored to the assignment at hand.
