CareGuide Gets Too Many Investors, Crashes Angel List

CareGuide runs local service marketplaces including Sitter.com, Housekeeper.com, and ElderCare.com.

The Toronto startup has enjoyed double-digit monthly traffic and revenue growth since it launched its portfolio of sites two years ago.

CareGuide recently closed a $1.1 million seed round that included a whopping 50 investors, including five seed funds. But the round was too much for popular investment platform Angel List to handle.

In the process of updating CareGuide’s Angel List profile, co-founder John Philip Green managed to crash the site. Green confirmed with Angel List’s Kevin Montag that CareGuide attracted more investors than Angel List has ever had to deal with before and as a result their profile crashed.

According to Green, “Angel List was instrumental in meeting and closing so many investors. I used it as the hub for all activity. Angel List, for us, replaced the pitch deck the same way LinkedIn replaced my résumé years ago.”
