SureSitter is a Dublin based startup connecting parents with trusted, local babysitters instantly. The web-based platform is designed to take the stress out of finding a babysitter by harnessing the power of recommendations to connect you with babysitters who are reliable and trustworthy.
Founded by mum of three, Sinead Asple, SureSitter was born from a personal frustration of not being able to find trusted local babysitters when she needed them. As a busy working mum, having been let down by her childminder once too often she decided to do something about it. So along with her co-founder, Paula Reilly, SureSitter was born.
They are among the first to join Talent Garden Dublin, a community which will be home to 350 members providing flexible workspace for freelancers, tech start-ups and corporate innovation labs.
We interviewed Co-Founder, Sinead Asple to find out more about the company and the opportunities they envisage from joining Talent Garden.
