Who Are We?
Transmit Start-Ups Ltd is based in Gateshead in the North East of England. It launched in 2013 as an off-shoot of Transmit Consulting, founded in 2006.
Transmit Start-Ups Ltd was set up with sole purpose of delivering the Government’s Start Up Loans programme. It provides finance, support and mentoring to new and existing entrepreneurs aged 18 and over and is one of only a few National Delivery Partners covering England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
