What are the Debut Sessions?
Harper James are thrilled to be supporting a brand-new investment scheme called the Debut Sessions. The brainchild of a group of UK investors, Debut Sessions offers new start-ups the chance to pitch to active investors from the comfort of your own home.
Debut Sessions is aimed at early-stage start-ups – you must be a UK-based company that’s formed in the last 18 months. You should be on your first fundraising round and your platform or product should look to improve work, life and health.
Perks from partners
We know how critical getting the right legal advice is early in your founding journey. That’s why we are offering £500 of free legal support to start-ups who make it through to pitch stage. And we’re in good company as a perk partner, because £20k worth of fee-free processing is up for grabs from Stripe, while Airtable is giving away $500 of credits to shortlisted applicants.
How will it work?
Debut Sessions will run once a month, and up to four companies will be shortlisted to pitch at each virtual session. The scheme is open-source, meaning that applicants can opt in to having their application shared within the wider investment ecosystem to increase your chance of attracting funding.
How to apply
Hop over to the Debut Sessions website, where you can find full eligibility criteria and details of how to apply. Good luck!
