“Let’s Solve Childcare!” - Our pitch at digitalswitzerland
Here’s the transcript of Pierre’s 2 minutes pitch:
My name is Pierre Moret, and I’m here today because I want to solve childcare in Switzerland.
Credit Suisse recently published a study called the Progress Barometer that lists childcare as one of the top issues we have to address and to solve in Switzerland.
Because as you know or remember, finding the right child nursery or Kita is quite a burden for young families.
Luckily, digitalization can help, and there are a few online Kita-directories. But most of them are local or regional.
This is why we launched Kitaclub.ch in 2014: Kitaclub is the only nationwide, multilingual and exhaustive Kita-directory. As of today, over 25% of the 3′000 listed Kitas have already registered as active members.
So now is a good point to go even beyond that.
What we now want is to seamlessly integrate the Kitas into our platform through their management software.
That will allow parents to directly check availability, put their kids on waiting-lists, manage their bookings, etc.
But also you as companies will benefit and will be able to easily manage childcare for your employees, thus making a big step toward improving their work-life balance.
So with my bet, I want to find 10-20 pilot-kitas and companies to develop that concept. And once it’s tested, we’ll spread the word and establish it in the whole country.
Thank you for your support.
Some very promising contacts have already been established, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to build up and to implement this concept even sooner than expected!
