Publish Date: March
Sheila Marcelo's inspiration to found Care.com stemmed from both her personal and professional experiences. A young mother with two small children who also became part of the "sandwich generation" caring for her parents at an early age, Marcelo was challenged to find quality care solutions. She knew this problem was not unique to her family and that there had to be a better solution than the yellow pages. Her career firmly rooted in technology, she knew that was the answer and founded Care.com in 2006. Today, the company is the world’s largest online destination for finding and managing family care, with more than 22 million members across 19 countries.
