If you have been looking for a caregiver for your children or aging parents, you would understand the pain in the caregiver-hunting process. Money aside, the caregiver not only has to be trustworthy, but also likeable by the children and/or the elderlies. If you have an energetic pet at home, the caregiver and your pet will probably need to be a good match too.

Therefore, when we were introduced to Toronto based CareGuide, a marketplace that focuses in connecting caregivers and those who are actively looking for them, we instantly understand the opportunity.

Today, we are thrilled to announce our investment in CareGuide, founded by John Philip Green. CareGuide helps you find the perfect babysitter, nanny, elder care provider, pet sitter, dog walker, housekeeper or house sitter.

At Two Small Fish Ventures, we are obsessed with network effect based businesses such as CareGuide. CareGuide not only has networks of nannies, housekeepers, elderly caregivers and people who are looking for them, but it also brings in the fold of cross pollination among networks.  This makes the network effect even stronger. 

We are very excited to be part of this venture and to help all of you who need a caregiver to find a great match.
