« The main idea was to make parents' lives easier and regain some flexibility [...] We tried to do it with an app that's easy, handy, and while we we were at it, pretty. »

Donatienne & Géraldine, co-founders of Bsit

's story

Beginning of 2015. Géraldine and Donatienne, two young mothers working full-time, are tired of how difficult it can be to find a trustworthy babysitter. They soon realize that the childcare world is still quite archaic and inefficient, in an era of digital and collaborative solutions. Then, why not take the matter into their own hands?

This is how Bsit, the collaborative babysitting app, was born. “We wanted to digitalize word-of-mouth" say the founders. In the app, trust is guaranteed by sharing reviews and recommendations among friends, family and colleagues. "Finding a childcare provider who received a good rating from the community is one thing. But if this person has already babysitted for one of your friends? Then it's much more reassuring. The opinion of the people we love, this is what matters most!"

Today, Bsit is multiplying its services to answer all childcare needs - from occasional babysittings to professional, long term care. As always, making parents' lives easier is the priority!
