MommaZoo has since been shut down
Busy moms have tough time keeping up with school activities for their kids, especially when they're the volunteering and fundraising arm of every school. So developer Matthieu Riou and ex-US naval officer Catheryne Nicholson, a mother of two, built MommaZoo--a mobile-based social network for connecting busy moms. On MommaZoo, Moms and teachers can share messages and photos, post updates for classes and groups, and create sign-up lists for volunteering. The product focuses on classroom-specific features and mobile experience to compete with services like SignUpGenius and VolunteerSpot. "Schools want money or volunteering from moms," Nicholson says, "and Moms care about what's happening in schools." Currently, half of the registered users visit the site every day. MommaZoo plans to monetize through mobile ads and recommendations of local services such as music lessons for kids.
MommaZoo was part of the Imagine K12 fourth cohort in 2013.
