Finnish startup Kids Friendly Media has taken second place in the Women Startup Competition in Budapest, Hungary.

The Women Startup Competition’s main goal is to increase awareness of female entrepreneurship in Europe, bring the women-led startups into the spotlight and help them to meet future investors.

Altogether 150 startups took part in this year’s competition from all over Europe. After five days of intensive training and pitching four winners were selected. The Finnish startup Kids Friendly Media took second place with its familywithkids.com platform. The first place went to Hungary-based Bookr Kids.

Online platform familywithkids.com is listing child-friendly services to help busy parents to discover, evaluate and book services. The project is led by Viktoriia Krasilshchikova, a working mother of three with over 10 years of experience in online-marketing and PR.

The Finland-based company’s pilot project kidsreview.ru was launched on the Russian market in 2010 and is currently used by eight million families in the region. Kids Friendly Media has plans to bring its service to the whole EU and the US markets by the end of 2017.
