Just Debate is a ‘Bitesize’ type political website that aims to portray all sides in contentious political debates and present it in a completely impartial manner. Many argue that our politics is governed either the elites or populist opinion but rarely are our political opinions educated. We want to change that.
We interview Pressure Groups, Charities, Politicians and Academics with very strong opinions on a wide range of issues; composing their arguments into key bullet points to summarise the argument. Our end goal is to increase our nations political participation, so the simplicity and note style of our articles is vital in attracting readers.

If applicable, what is your growth like? And what milestones has your startup achieved so far?:
The foundation of ‘Just Debate’ lies in the idea of helping everyone voices their opinions, irrespective of their social or economic background. While there is always a risk of an individual opinion being lost amongst the countless voices that are raised each day, we have ensured that everyone gets equal opportunity to showcase what they believe in a digitized debating platform.
The problems that occurred were mainly related to the technical aspect of getting everyone online on a single platform as people with contrary views can sometimes be difficult to monitor. However, these technicalities were resolved soon enough.

‘Just Debate’ is different because it allows real-time debating without having one to worry about any technical constraints.

How big do you think you can get? Why? And how you are planning to achieve your goals?:
After the establishment of the platform, we would like to further diversify into issues that affect societies at a local level, and involve a greater proportion of the online population in issues that are otherwise unheard of in the mainstream media.
Finally, do you have any other comments or information about your product that you would like to add?:
‘Just Debate’ began with the idea to encourage young people along with everyone to voice their opinions in a constructive manner. The website has been designed to deliberate upon important topics and events that are current shaping the world we live in.
