Find a place at a daycare centre

Little Bird GmbH, Berlin: nominated for the German Entrepreneur Award 2015 in the Rising Star category

Newly separated with a toddler in tow and a stranger to a new town - hardly the best conditions to start a business. Anke Odrig managed to do it anyway. Her online portal Little Bird helps parents find a free place for their child at a daycare centre and at the same time lighten the local authority's administrative load. This successful business model earned her a nomination for the German Entrepreneur Award 2015 in the Rising Star category.
