  • What is Basejam?

    At Basejam we are revolutionising the way teams connect in-person.

    The global shift to remote work has been pivotal in improving employee work-life balance and mental health in the workplace. However, this new distributed way of working is proven to create disconnection between co-workers, along with a lack of alignment with company values.

    Company retreats and offsites offer a solution to this disconnection problem. Retreats empower in-person connection, while still offering employees the flexibility to work when they want, and where they want. But these retreats are notoriously difficult to organise and are a huge bottleneck for HR and operation teams.

    The Basejam platform enables companies to book and manage their entire retreat; from booking accommodation and flights, to attendee management features. Our vision is for the platform to be the ecosystem for in-person team connection.

    Why are we doing this?

    • We’re passionate about improving mental health and well-being in the workplace 🙏🏻 Burnout is caused by a lack of connection to our work, and is experienced by 77% of people. In-person retreats are proven to reduce burnout and stress by increasing connection with colleagues and company culture.
    • We believe that company culture cannot exist solely online ✨ Having recently faced mass resignation during ‘The Great Resignation’, companies are looking for ways to unite their workforce and motivate employees. It’s clear that a fully-remote working environment isn’t working, and retreats are becoming a pivotal part of culture-building in organisations.
    • We are empowering companies to enable their employees to work remotely 📍 We believe remote-working has been a productive shift in work-life balance, and is here to stay. No more 9-5 in a grey office, it’s time to reimagine how employees connect in-person with simple-to-plan retreats.

    Who are we?

    We are currently a team of two experienced founders. Steph, our CEO, has a product background in taking ideas from 0-1. She’s led product teams for startups and scale-ups from HospitalityTech and Fintech to ClimateTech. Chris, CTO, has worked with large organisations such as PHE, and many early-stage startups growing from first customers, to 7-figure revenue. We started Basejam in August, and in the coming months we are expanding the team to include growth/marketing, and product/engineering jammers 🏔️

    We’ve raised £180K pre-seed so far, and will start raising our seed round in April next year.
