Tackling childcare with Winnie CEO Sara Mauskopf
By Scott Kitun
Sara Mauskopf, founder and CEO of Winnie, joins the show to talk with Scott about finding access to childcare and the challenges millennial parents face. Sara goes into her origin story how she never intended to be a founder, but after experiencing difficulties finding childcare solutions for her own child, she decided to create Winnie, a one-stop marketplace for childcare providers and parents to contact and transact. Parents can see vetted information on childcare options all across the US. Sara and Scott talk about the unique circumstances the pandemic brought on parents, especially working moms, and how it shined a glaring light on opportunities to address childcare through public policy and the private sector. They also talk tech and why Winnie is able to attract talent from some of the best tech companies around and make a impact on people's daily lives.
