We were beyond humbled to even be nominated, especially alongside the three finalists in our category (Most Innovative Startup) were also all part of the e-factory accelerator program with us this last summer! Our friends at the e-factory were also winners for Community Impact! Well deserved!
While the winners were announced at an event on Thursday, Feb. 28, this month’s Biz 417 features all category winners. Pick up your copy to read about SelectSitter and all the amazing winners.
Thank you Biz 417 for giving our startup this amazing recognition!

Ditch the checkbook, and stop running to the ATM. SelectSitter is rolling out in-app payments!
Hi fellow parents and babysitters! We have some big news here at SelectSitter. We are rolling out in-app payments starting December 10 (postponed to Jan. 2019). That means soon you’ll be able to find, book, and pay your babysitters directly through the app. For all you sitters out there, this means you’ll be able to accept payments right in the app. No more last-minute trips to the ATM, and no more hunting down the checkbook. Just log in to the SelectSitter app and securely enter your payment info. We’ll take care of the rest. We’ll even send you helpful reminders when it’s time to pay your sitter and when you have funds waiting for you in your account.
We’ve been working on this new feature for the last several months. We actually got the idea from all of you! In-app payments has been the No. 1 request we’ve heard from parents and sitters since we launched last November. Now, after some experimenting, we’re ready to answer that request.
But first, let’s go over the highlights!
We’ll send you helpful reminders to make sure you pay your sitter.
We’ll also keep you posted when you have funds waiting for you in your account.
Your payment info will be securely stored in the app, which means you can pay your sitter anytime and anywhere.
No more trips to the ATM or scrounging up cash for those last-minute babysitting requests.
December 10 can’t get here soon enough! This is babysitting in the digital age.
