Something I made. (Actually the app I rely on every day.) Currently in beta.
NEED/DONE - The first app that helps working parents get the help they need from the people they trust.
Download it now.
NEED/DONE. They say it takes a village... So we decided to put one on an app. (cont.)
With no family nearby and very little support, no wonder we’re all a little overwhelmed. This is the app 42M parents in America have been waiting for.
According to the 450 we polled before running our pilot in May, what working parents need more than anything else is some added support. Practical help to get home-related crap off their plate, and for someone to serve as their trusted proxy at home when they need to be at work.
So why not help each other out, share resources among friends, and call for trusted help at the touch of a button?
Need/Done provides instant help from sitters & home-helpers your friends use and trust.
Creating a product made for millennial head of households presents an awesome opportunity. Especially in a $48+billion market.
NPR ran a four-part podcast about the making of NEED/DONE (Note To Self / Taking the Lead). Fascinated by the notion that someone's decided to apply themselves to solving a social problem (helping more working mothers get to the C-suite) with a tech-led solution, they've been following our story since then.
Interestingly, the story starts with us getting a last-minute admission retraction by an incubator based in Menlo Park, “claiming” to support women-led initiatives like ours. The irony of this happening to a team creating an app that supports working women is not lost on us... We’ve come a fair way since.
If you’re interested in growing a “village” in your neighborhood, or getting involved as an angel advisor at this seed stage, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll never say no to a helping hand.
