Los Angeles-based HopSkipDrive, the kids' ridesharing service which is led by Joanna McFarland, said today that it has raised $10.2M in a Series A funding. The funding was led by FirstMark Capital, and also included Greycroft Partners and Pritzker Group Venture Capital, along with prior investors Upfront Ventures, BBG Ventures and 1776. The ridesharing service--which taps screened, childcare providers to drive children around town for busy parents--also said it has named the former GM of Uber in Los Angeles, Eyal Gutentag, as its Chief Operations Officer. HopSkipDrive currently only offers its service within Los Angeles, but says it hopes to expand to other U.S. markets later this year. More information »
