Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Toronto, Canada - Apr 27, 2016 - A startup dedicated to helping parents and daycares was featured on a popular television program recently.
Business News Network (BNN) featured CubbySpot – a website and app which allows parents to find daycare spots for their children in all major Canadian cities, including Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and St. John – earlier this month. The segment can now be viewed online at http://www.bnn.ca/News/2016/4/21/Disruptor-1-Cubbyspot.aspx.
The site also got coverage at Betakit, a website featuring Canadian business startups at http://betakit.com/cubbyspot-removing-the-headache-from-daycare-wait-times-on-thedisruptors/ .
CubbySpot, which was named one of Toronto’s Most Promising Startups by the Founder Institute, got its start in Toronto and now has 12,000 daycares in its database. This is the largest collection of daycare listings across Canada in a mobile app.
Company co-founder and chief executive officer Regnard Raquedan and his wife, Liza, founded CubbySpot after they had trouble finding a daycare for their daughter. After countless Internet searches and endless waiting lists, they came up with CubbySpot, which has allowed Canadians to search for daycare services.
The site can be used by both parents looking for an easy-to-use way to find a daycare or by a daycare director, owner, or manager looking to fill full-time, part-time, and backup/emergency openings in their centres.
CubbySpot has been raking in honours since its inception. It was named one of three finalists at the 2015 Ignite Capital startup competition in the Immigrant category, and was one of the 10 winners at the 2016 Brightlane Entrepreneur Awards. It was also one of 30 finalists in the Global Innovation through Science and Technology (GIST) Tech-I Competition, an annual competition for science and technology entrepreneurs from emerging economies worldwide.
