Company description

An online service for parents and sitters to connect through people they know, UrbanSitter makes booking a trusted babysitter as easy as booking dinner reservations.  The site enables parents to search, book and review trusted sitters within minutes.

Headquartered in San Francisco, UrbanSitter was founded by a group of Internet veterans who wanted to use technology to power a faster, more personal babysitting service. For more information or to sign up, visit www.urbansitter.com.

Competitive advantage

Unlike with other national childcare websites, UrbanSitter enables parents to view sitters they know—as well as sitters their friends know—and book them in real-time.
