Company Overview


Vision / Elevator Pitch

Our fully ‘tech driven’ local babysitting and nanny business did over $100K in revenue overnight in 2015, and is on target for $500K in 2016!

There is a MASSIVE need for locally vetted on-demand childcare, in every city!

So, we are building our own software and franchising our business model.

If every local babysitting and nanny business had a business model and software platform like NannyPod, they could capture massive extra market share by providing locally vetted on-demand care!

We are building our own software so we can franchise, and have 1,000s of NannyPod nanny agencies and babysitting services across the USA.

Fees: $20K Franchise Fee, 30% Revenue Share + $299/month per NannyPod location.

Traction / Validation

We have full ‘proof of concept’. We vetted 75 sitters and have 300 families using our local tech driven nanny and babysitter service. We’re on target for $500K in revenue in 2016.

Currently most nanny businesses use basic scheduling software, a spreadsheet and a calendar! They could start operating in a tech driven manner almost immediately, just like NannyPod, and capture massive extra market share.

*MindBody (software, but only for gyms/spas) did $101million in revenue in 2015, (expecting $132million for 2016). They have 51,000 clients in over 130 countries, servicing 28 million consumers and did $1.4billion in payments last year. NannyPod aims also build a white brand version of our software called SitterSuite. SitterSuite will be the MindBody of the babysitting and nanny agency industry, handling all payments and scheduling.

Market Opportunity

There are 1,000s of local mom & pop nanny agencies and babysitting services who are still using spreadsheets, calendars, and doing manual invoicing. By bringing all of the tech tools on to one platform and using our proprietary business model will simplify their operations, and allow them to scale!

The Problem

There is currently no software platform that encompasses all of the cool tech tools you need, that also integrates with other software, to run an efficient local nanny agency or babysitting service.

Parents are overwhelmed by the likes of which has no local oversight. They prefer locally vetted childcare, and cool technology like on-demand scheduling… that’s how we scaled our ‘proof of concept’ nanny agency and sitter service overnight!

Marketing & Growth Strategy

Nanny agencies, babysitting businesses, mom's groups, community associations, and more can all apply online for a NannyPod franchise. Once approved, it’s turnkey, so they can literally scale overnight. They find NannyPod through digital marketing. We have an outbound sales team who follow up with all leads.

Our growth strategy is a spider’s web approach, reaching cities that are geographically close to each other.

The NannyPod business model is very sticky, so the attrition rates will be extremely low.

NannyPod franchises and the SitterSuite software are game changers for the childcare industry.

  • 1000 NannyPod franchise locations, doing $500,000 in revenue each year, making $100,000 in profit, and paying a 30% profit share fee of $30K, would provide NannyPod HQ with $30,000,000 per year in recurring revenue.
  • 1000 SitterSuite nanny agency clients, doing $500,000 in revenue each year, paying a 5% fee on all transactions, would provide an extra $25,000,000 per year in recurring revenue.
  • Potentially, that is $55,000,000 per annum in recurring revenue. If we had 50,000 clients in over 130 countries, our revenue would be in the region of $2.5 billion.

*SitterSuite software is the ‘MindBody of the babysitting industry’ (NASDAQ: MB). MindBody which is similar software, but only for gyms/spas, did $101million in revenue in 2015, (expecting $132million for 2016). They have 51,000 clients in over 130 countries, servicing 28 million consumers and did $1.4 billion in payments last year.

Direct Competition: There are some basic scheduling software services out there like ScheduleThing, Acuity Scheduling and AppointY but they have very limited features and are not client centric. SitterSuite is specifically designed for nanny agencies and babysitting businesses.

Indirect Competition: We must consider, and as indirect competition. None of these firms have a ‘local presence’ and do not provide software to babysitting businesses or nanny agencies to operate. NannyPod franchises are locally operated and turnkey.

"We feel so lucky to have met our nanny through this service. She is reliable, experienced, and very special to our son! We have also used another sitter for date nights and she has been great too! I am an early childhood teacher and very picky about who we trust to care for our child, NannyPod has been a great way to connect and find experienced sitters for us. Response from the owner Thank you so much Elizabeth. Hope that we can continue to be of help to your lovely family!! -The NannyPod Team"

"We've had great experiences with multiple sitters who have been enthusiastic, engaging, and professional. Such a relief to not worry about my kids when I'm at work, but also have the ease of booking on-line and access to back-up sitters without the stress of interviewing and doing background checks myself. NannyPod has made finding a sitter easy! Highly recommend. Response from the owner8 months ago We appreciate your feedback. Thank you so much for using NannyPod!"
