Pawshake provides online marketplace which connects pet owners to pet sitters. Its service enables pet owners in need of pet-care services, such as home dog boarding, dog walking, cat visit and pet sitting, to find and book local pet sitters.

The company was founded in 2013 by Tanguy Peers and Dries Coucke.[1]

History[edit]

Dries, one of the co-founder, was looking for a way to take care of his father's dog. His father had lung cancer. As a manager of a Facebook page related to rescued animal, he asked the community what they thought of the idea of a website that would help match a dog owner to a dog sitter. The response was incredibly positive. That was in 2010. Three years later, Pawshake was lauched.[2]

At the end of 2014, they were 14 employees managing communities in 10 countries.

In 2018, Pawshake is operating in 19 countries, supporting the communities in English, Dutch, French, German, Finnish, Danish and more.

Financing[edit]

In December of 2014, Craig Blair and Daniel Petre announced that through their new fund AirTree Ventures, they would invest 1.5 millions dollars in the newly created company.[3]

Board Members & investors[edit]

Currently there are three board members: Joost Schreve, Giuseppe Trettenero and Tanguy Peers.

Giuseppe Trettenero has served as Venture Partner at Innogest Capital since October, 2016.[4]

Joost Schreve is the CEO of KimKim, which he founded in 2015 after leaving Tripadvisor.[5]
