We recently started running a campaign to promote Start Up Loans, called #TransmitStories.

The reason we have given it that name is that we have put three of our loan recipients at the centre of the campaign, so they can tell their own stories about how they got into business and how the Start Up Loan helped them get started.

The three entrepreneurs who feature in the campaign are:

Yuvna KimYuvna Kim

Yuvna runs fashion label Yuvna Kim Ltd, designing and making beautiful dresses for special occasions. A number of celebrities wear her dresses to red carpet events, including Joss Stone, Pixie Lott and The Saturdays.

James ShuttJames Shutt

James is a graduate of Northumbria University and, upon graduating, he set up Forward Design Innovation providing front-end design and problem solving services to blue ship clients.

Frederic TagneFred Tagne

Originally from Paris, Fred settled in Newcastle to establish La Petite Creperie, serving crepes and galettes at his shop in the Grainger Market and at various events and pop-ups across the North East.

We will be posting separate videos of each entrepreneur over the next few weeks but this video gives an overview of the campaign and the three people involved:

In addition to the videos, we have placed Yuvna, James and Fred on our new flyers, web banner ads and pull up banners that we use at our events across the UK.

Frederic said: “I could never have got my dream off the ground without Transmit Startups’ help. Their funding and advice have been really helpful to me to realise my dream of opening my own creperies.”
