Following a successful $8 million Series A round at the tail-end of 2018, The Mom Project, based out of Chicago, has opened the doors for a new partnership with a San Francisco childcare startup to offer clients more benefits and solutions.
The Mom Project, which has built an online platform to connect employers to viable female candidates, announced Monday that it’s working with UrbanSitter, an online and mobile service that connects parents to babysitters. Through the partnership, The Mom Project’s clients, who are mainly mothers, will have access to free childcare while they are interviewing for jobs.
Every member of The Mom Project now receives a free month of UrbanSitter’s services, and whenever they have an employer interview through The Mom Project’s marketplace, they receive a $75 UrbanSitter credit.
UrbanSitter, founded in 2010, taps into a parent’s personal network to connect them with sitters of friends, co-workers and other social circles to find a sitter they feel they can trust. The company, which has raised more than $40 million in venture capital funding, has about 1 million users across 50 cities.
“At UrbanSitter we strive to meet the diverse demands of childcare,” said Lynn Perkins, the co-founder and CEO of UrbanSitter, in a statement. “As a company created by women for women, we are proud to work with The Mom Project to provide a crucial support network for thousands of mothers across the country who are pursuing their career goals in 2019.”
