Why We Are
Let’s be honest – for all the innovation of the Internet age, parenting is still one of the toughest gigs around.
When kids arrive we all know it’s our social lives that pay the biggest price, largely because finding trusted babysitters at short notice is so difficult. We’re out to change all that by putting great parents in touch with great sitters.
However, we understand that simply connecting the two sides easily is not enough on its own – trust is key.
That’s why this ‘socially smart’ mobile app not only allows parents to find, book and pay their sitters in a few taps – it also shows both parents and sitters how they’re connected through mutual friends.
bubble is about the power of the personal connection, which is how we believe parents love to find their babysitters.
Who We Are
bubble grew from the joy of parenthood, and the realisation that finding a trusted source of babysitters was going to be key to surviving it(!).
We (Ari & Adrian) have over 15 years’ experience in internet businesses like Betfair, notonthehighstreet.com and MarketInvoice – add in some amazing young children and it was this combination that hatched bubble.
Alongside some fantastic angel investors, our business is being built on the wisdom and ‘always frank’ advice of parents and babysitters – crazy about kids and determined to find the best help to take care of them.
