Entrepreneurs: Todd Colby Pliss

Rent-A-Grandma is a way to connect trustworthy senior citizens with customers seeking childcare and other household services. Combining Grandma’s with parents looking for a responsible babysitter was such a unique idea.

 The idea behind Rent-a-Grandma is that babysitters these days just don’t provide the same experience grandmas can.

Depending on your needs, grandma is being rented out for $14 to $20 per hour. In the end, none of the Sharks were interested in this idea.
