Meet the 2017 Finalists: BridgeCare Finance

Posted by Jaimisa Gourley
SVP Fast Pitch 2017 - Semifinals

Our Mission: We believe it is possible for everyone to be part of a healthy happy family.  We believe financial systems can be built to add value to families rather than extract from them. Our payment plans for childcare help working families achieve their highest aspirations through a financing option that offers greater access and choice to quality care as well as the ability to maintain an uninterrupted career path.

What inspires you most about the work you do? Everyday we get to work to build a solution that is not yet available, one we need for ourselves! It is incredibly empowering to build rather than wait for others to do it for us.

What’s next for your organization? Connecting with the families and childcare providers we can serve now in WA state as well as with the investors and other supporters who can help us bring BridgeCare to scale.

What have you learned from the SVP Fast Pitch process so far? We have been telling our story for a while and it is always amazing how a fresh perspective and feedback can help illuminate something we may have under-emphasized. Our coach told us “you need to brag more about everything you have accomplished!” Because we are invested in BridgeCare for the long-term we see so much more on the horizon and we are often pitching our long-term vision. We forget to take credit for what we have already accomplished!

What are you most excited about on October 24th? Having such a large, thoughtful audience for BridgeCare. We know there will be people in the audience who can use our service or who have a friend that really needs our service or who can offer mentorship and support. All of our big wins so far have come because someone heard about what we were doing, recognized it was a missing piece in supporting families and offered support or connections for our vision.
