Growing your skills

Business training

Learn Smarta is no-nonsense business skills training. It equips business owners with the skills for startup success, through accessible, practical business advice.

We offer fully-funded business training through several enterprise organisations - as well as direct access, self-funded options. Training is online and on-demand, so you can boost your business smarts at a pace and place that suits you. We also offer in-person training courses for people who prefer face-to-face support.

You can also access our expert small business advice via Think Smarta - our business skills blog - and Transmit Startups’ resources section.

Getting set for success

Business marketplaces

Every business needs to buy and sell services, so we’ve created a community that helps you do just that.

Shop Smarta is our collection of recommended products for small businesses and SMEs. It’s about getting you the right tools for the job. But we’ve also negotiated some cracking discounts for you wherever we can.

Trade Smarta is our online directory of Smarta business listings. Smarta members can create a free listing to promote their services to other community members. We regularly shine a spotlight on member listings through our mailing list and social media.


AI/technology consultancy

Team Transmit is also involved in innovative technology for small businesses. Our business tech boffins love anything that makes life easier for startups and SMEs. After building our own chatbot to handle customer service enquiries, we got inspired to invest in an AI company, now trading as Smarta AI. This means we can now offer technology consultancy services, focusing on applying Artificial General Intelligence to small business challenges.
