If you have connections to the UK start-up or SME community then we’d love to talk to you.
TYPES OF PARTNERSHIPS
Associate Business Adviser
You will perform a similar function to our in-house Business Advisers, although you will work remotely (you’re always welcome to our offices of course!).
You will help promote the Start Up Loans scheme, find suitable applicants, and assist them through the business planning and financial forecasting process.
You will be an experienced business adviser, preferably with experience of running your own business, and a good working knowledge of the Start Up Loans scheme. You will largely be responsible for generating your own clients although Transmit Start-Ups may also pass clients over to you.
If you are a business consultancy, accountancy firm, web design company, franchisor or any organisation that has access to the start-up community, then you are probably suitable to be an Affiliate partner.
If you are a recipient of a Start Up Loan and feel that you can help promote the scheme to your start up community then contact us about being a Start Up Loans Champion.
We will provide you with marketing materials so that you can promote the Start Up Loans programme via your website, blog, social media and newsletters.
As an Affiliate or a Champion, you will not be required to advise the applicant in any way.
We work closely with a number of franchise companies across the UK, and we are always keen to work with more. The most any founder can borrow is £25,000 so we tend to partner with franchise companies that are the lower end of franchise fees.
As our partner you will make potential franchisees aware of Start Up Loans as a possible source of finance, to cover the cost of the franchise fee or invest in equipment, stock and marketing. While we prefer to see franchisees investing some of their own money as well, in some cases we can provide 100% of their funding requirement.
