• About us

    We are Rachel Heikamp and Joanne van Altena, two young, energetic entrepreneurs who love children and Amsterdam. We met in autumn 2015 through The Upstarter, a project that connects ambitious young entrepreneurs with startups. We hit it off immediately, working together and drinking coffees as if we had known each other for years. And we had something in common: we are both inspired by enterprise and very experienced with kids and babysitting. The Night Nanny was the obvious step: an idea Rachel, a mother herself, had been brewing for a while, and which immediately piqued Joanne’s interest.
