Strategic Partner Spotlight: Megumi Moss, Founder and CEO, Carefinder
I joined FEW 4 years ago, around the same time I started my company CareFinder, a bilingual babysitter matching site. CareFinder aims to support working women and families in Japan. CareFinder’s mission is similar to FEW’s.
Four years ago, when I left my job to start CareFinder, I needed support as I was embarking on a new journey. Without the help of the FEW community, I would not have found the support, guidance, and network I needed to start CareFinder.
Over the past four years, the CareFinder community has evolved into an international community of trusted babysitters. The CareFinder team puts a lot of effort into ensuring the babysitters on our site are up to the CareFinder standards. We put each sitter through a strict screening process, bring them each to our office for a face-to-face interviews, confirm childcare experience, ensure permission to work in Japan, and register with the government.
Because CareFinder caters to both the international and Japanese communities we are able to attract babysitters from varied backgrounds, such as students from over the world, au pairs from Europe, multilingual sitters, or Japanese license child care providers. Exposing children to such diverse backgrounds helps foster an enriching environment for children to grow up in. CareFinder seeks to go beyond simply babysitting, but to help children grow into well rounded open-minded individuals.
Now CareFinder is in the position to give back to the FEW community that we have gained so much from. We are looking forward to working together with FEW as a Strategic Partner.
