Media Centre

The Transmit team loves to work with journalists, broadcasters, bloggers and influencers.

We really value the important role you play in keeping the UK’s entrepreneurs informed, inspired and connected. And we want to help. Give us a shout if you need: an opinion on a trending topic, a case study to bring your story to life, expert advice for an industry piece, some feature ideas or a few facts and figures.

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we have first-hand experience of what’s keeping businesses awake at night. We pride ourselves on telling it like it is.

We have a direct line to the startup community and can put you in touch. So if you are a journalist who needs a regional story, a blogger looking to work with enterprising families, or an influencer wanting to better understand startups in a specific sector, we'll help you find interesting examples and insight.

Tell us what you're working on and how we can help by contacting Marketing Manager Suzy Jackson by email.
