At Bubble, we are striving to solve one of society’s biggest problems, with the potential to make life better for millions of people. Our revolutionary on-demand app allows parents to source, book and pay for childcare quickly, flexibly and securely. Our goal is to help parents be ‘all they need to be’. We are in a unique position to really add value and change the lives of our users for the better, during Covid and beyond.
Customers have really embraced our service offering and we now boast over 130,000 users, across the UK, with over 1 million hours of childcare already requested on our platform. We are a venture-backed tech startup, growing fast, with funding already secured to grow the team and business further.
Our tech-driven approach aids this by using big data and 100m+ relationship nodes between our users to connect parents with carers from within their own trusted social circles. We are in the business of digitising trust and we are deeply passionate about the potential of our product. As well as scaling up, we are also committed to further innovation and development and are scoping out several new features and services to further benefit our customers.
