If you run a business then we understand just how busy you are. It can be difficult to carve out time to spend with your friends and family, let alone take a few hours out of your day to enter your business into awards - but your business and your hard work deserves to be recognised.

We’re a delivery partner of the government’s Start Up Loans scheme, and this year they have partnered with media outlet startups.co.uk to recognise the very best new businesses in their Startups Awards. Awards can work wonders when it comes to boosting the profile of yourself and your business, and can also give you a much-needed boost when times are stressful.

Better still, if you’re a Start Up Loan recipient from Transmit Startups, then entry is FREE (usually £50 per entry) - so make the most of it and get some recognition for your business, for free!

As the saying goes, you’ve got to be in it to win it, so take some time out of your day to enter these prestigious start-up awards.
