About Sawyer: 

Sawyer is an online platform that provides a convenient, all-in-one booking service, the Sawyer Marketplace, for parents looking to discover and schedule activities for their children outside the classroom. Created by Marissa Evans Alden and Stephanie Choi -- who connected during their time at Rent The Runway -- the two Brooklyn moms were overwhelmed with the task of finding activities for their children. Providing a solution, Sawyer was born as a way to connect parents to an array of providers through their user-friendly booking tool, ensuring every child is given the opportunity to discover their own love of learning and adventure - right in their own neighborhood. Sawyer’s diverse range of providers gives parents ease of mind when booking anything from a last-minute infant playgroups, to a semester-long French class, to a three-month summer camp and more. Sawyer is equally committed to helping providers who offer the best enriching childhood experiences through Sawyer Tools, a payment, scheduling, and business management SaaS product that streamlines the online registration and booking process. The platform is currently active in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago neighborhoods, with plans to further expand in 2019.
