Ari Last is the CEO and Founder of Bubble.
After becoming a parent, Ari was shocked by the lack of innovation in the childcare space and set out to change this.
In this episode, Ari explains the challenges in building a marketplace for users that are trusting you with the most valuable thing in their lives, their children.
Bubble achieves this in two ways:
1. Using social proof as the key to building trust with parents. Who are you going to trust more than someone vouched for by a friend or family member?
2. Secondly by giving the power back to the parents. Historically childcare agencies would just send a nanny to a family, with Bubble the parents decide which nanny they use.
Tune in to hear how Ari has grown the UK’s largest on-demand in-home childcare platform, with over 200,000 families and 100,000 carers on the app.
