The application is revolutioninzing the relationship between women with pregnancy or maternity problem, allowing moms of every age to share their knowledge help each other.

“Whatever time of day or night, WeMoms today is the promise for every mom to get an answer to any of her questions in less than 4 min. Our goal is to go from waiting few minutes to receive an answer to get an instant response. ” says Antoine Cardoso, the incredible founder of WeMoms.

The continous and direct access to this community of ultra reactive moms, enabled the application to grow by 30% every week since its launch.

Thanks to this incredible growth, the team WeMoms sucessfully raised 600k from prestigious entrepreneurs as Xavier Niel (Free), Oliver Samwer (Rocket Internet), Jean-David Blanc (Screenrush), Thibaud Elzière (Fotolia) or Jean David Benichou (serial entrepreneur specializing in mobile).

The funds will be used to expand the team and to export the idea to England, Spain and Germany, where WeMoms plans to launch by the end of the year.

“More than 500 million moms worldwide own a smartphone, our goal is to help them as quickly as possible ” – Mr Cardoso.
