SittingAround

Founded in 2010, SittingAround makes it easy to create, manage, and grow a babysitting cooperative. Babysitting coops already save thousands of families a great deal of time and money each year. Our goal is to make coops so easy and so well known that every parent joins one. We automate many of the tasks required to effectively manage a coop so our users can focus on what's really important - building and enjoying childcare communities.

FlightCar

http://www.flightcar.com

FlightCar is the first peer to peer car sharing company to operate by airports. We allow vehicle owners to park with FlightCar for free while they are away, traveling. During that time, we rent out the owners' cars by matching people interested in renting a car to particular vehicles. People renting get a much better deal than with a conventional rental agency, while car owners get free parking for their entire trip, can make money based on the type of car they have, and also get a free carwash and cleaning. FlightCar also fully insures each rental up to $1 million to protect both owners and renters. We currently have locations in San Francisco and Boston, and will be opening our next location, Los Angeles, in early September.
