The Beginning of Komae

Komae began in the hearts of Amy Husted & Audrey Wallace in 2015.  They are two SAHMs (stay-at-home moms) turned co-founders, building an app that empowers parents to exchange free babysitting with their personal network of friends—a solution to a very real problem to find trusted, affordable care that they experienced in their own lives. Being two young moms, they were investing nearly all their time and money in raising their children, while simultaneously growing small businesses, serving their community, and seeking a piece of sanity. They wanted a break so they set out to hack the $10+/hour rate of babysitters with the creation of Komae.  Read more about their story here.
