Well, hello there...

If you're here looking for a growth loan, you're probably a little bit different to a 'normal' business. And that's perfect... because we're a little bit different too.

Not in a cringey 'hey let's be friends with our phone provider' way. But because we're real people, who really want to help you grow.

  • Our bottom line is how many businesses we can support, not how much money we can make for our shareholders. Spoiler alert, we don't have any.
  • Most of our team have been self employed before. Some of them still are.
  • Our business was created by three local entrepreneurs who thought that the support offered to businesses lacked empathy, enthusiasm and real creativity. We're here to change that.

Based in Gateshead, we're Northern souls, working with you and for you. Bursting with passion and professionalism, we promise you'll always get a fair chance and an honest answer. And if you happen to be passing, a warm welcome if you want to say hi.

Just don't expect to see any suits. Dress code is strictly casual.

But doesn't everyone say they're different?

We aren't Troy McClure, but you may recognise us from such roles as being the UK's leading delivery partner for Start Up Loans, starting more than 6,000 businesses with £60m since 2013.

Transmit Startups has built a solid reputation around the country for providing level headed, real world support to people setting up businesses, and Transmit Growth Loans continues that work. Again, we're focusing on those excluded from mainstream finance, lending responsibly to unlock growth in businesses like yours.

  • We are human. First and foremost, you'll be dealing with actual people in our team who know about entrepreneurship and understand the array of challenges that accompany it.
  • We have access to flexible products, meaning we can deal with a variety of requirements and circumstances.
  • We understand there’s more to a business than a balance sheet.
