Founders and co-owners of Wyndy, Ginger and Tommy Mayfield, have been on a pursuit to eliminate wasted time and hassle from one of the most everyday tasks for some students and parents.

Finding a baby sitter can be difficult for all aged parents – It can be even harder for college students.

Wyndy is here to provide the “uber for babysitting”, coined by Tommy Mayfield during his 1MillionCupsBham presentation.

According to a recent press release, the two co-founders and husband and wife have finally launched their app.

“The current process of finding and booking babysitters is inefficient and often results in endless texts and unnecessary frustration.

We intend for Wyndy to be that technology.”
