The company was founded by Ron Spreeuwenberg[4][5] and Alana Frome.[6][7]

History

The company was incorporated on June 25, 2013[8] The first version of the HiMama mobile app was released on the App Store and Google Play in October 2013.

In May 2016, HiMama reached 100,000 Users[9] HiMama was featured in the Business News Network show The Disruptors on December 2, 2016.[10] and won the Disruptors Pitch Startup Contest.[11]

Application

HiMama is an app that enables educators and childcare programs to make profiles for children, track their development, and keep parents in the loop. Educators can log attendance, share up-to-date reports and insights of the child's behavior, send photos and videos, and can also record naps, meals, and bathroom breaks. Parents can be updated through email, text, and notifications via the HiMama website and mobile app.[13][14][15]

Research

On an annual basis, HiMama releases a benchmark report on the North American child care sector, with the inaugural report being released in 2016. The report is intended to inform childcare programs about financial and operational performance relative to their peer group based on self-reported survey data.[16][17]
