Helping parents and providers through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane. When we started Winnie back in 2016, we knew that this new generation of millennial parents was fundamentally different from those that came before. The vast majority of millennial families don’t have a stay-at-home parent  even though the demands of parenthood are higher than ever .
Today we're excited to share that we launched our comprehensive database of daycares and preschools throughout Florida. We've added over 11,000 licensed providers and parents can filter them by availability, age, and hours of care as well as share their experiences and read reviews from other parents.
Today we're excited to announce that we've expanded our marketplace of daycares and preschools to Chicago and all of Illinois. We've added over 9,200 Illinois providers to the platform with detailed insights such as licensing status, quality ratings, parent reviews, photos, and more.
We’re building a new kind of unicorn — one that stands to make more money for women than men.

Happy second birthday Winnie!
Today, we couldn’t be more proud to announce that Winnie has grown to serve more than one million users across 10,000 U.S. cities. As we celebrate this milestone, we’re also excited to share that we’ve raised $4M in additional funding led by Reach Capital, with participation from a diverse set of investors including Rethink Impact, Homebrew, Ludlow Ventures, Afore Capital, BBG Ventures, and Kairos.
Recode recently published a state of the union about how moms in tech felt returning to their jobs after having babies. The results were encouraging with 50% of women surveyed rating their experience returning to work post-baby in tech as a great one and 80% reporting that they have stayed at their jobs since returning. The tech industry is finally waking up to the needs of new parents and all is fine and dandy, you might assume after reading this survey.
From the beginning, Winnie’s mission has been to equip parents with the information they need to be successful. In the majority of American households, all of the adults work at least part-time, which means the majority of American households have no full-time stay-at-home caregiver. One of the biggest issues parents face is finding high-quality child care.
