Our Story

For founders, Stephanie and Jule, the KareHero mission is personal. We know what it's like to be working family caregivers.

Between us, we have almost 50 year's experience in business and technology, but like millions of others, we have faced the struggle of trying to balance work and family caregiving commitments.

Prior to founding KareHero, she was a Venture Partner at LocalGlobe VC, COO at startup tiney, Regional Director for 20 countries at Uber, DEI Co-Chair and EMEA Head of Women@Uber.

An alum of Harvard & Cambridge, Stephanie wrote her Masters thesis on the socio-economic impact of the ageing population on the global economy.

"Every major economy in the world is facing a shrinking workforce and an ageing population. Governments, employers and working family caregivers will need to work together to adapt to this new reality. KareHero is built on the belief that we have a fundamental role to play in making families' lives better with true care support."

Our mission:

To improve the lives of working caregivers

Today, when working caregivers need to look after a family member or loved one they have to juggle caregiving responsibilities and work or leave their job. They burn out, become unwell themselves, downgrade their career, and lose income.

We envision a world where caregivers have the support they need to maintain their careers and a good quality of life, whilst providing care to those they love.

KareHero aims to help create a positive future for employers, employees and their families.

  • Working adult caregivers do not have to choose between their family or their career

  • Support for working caregivers with adult dependents are viewed in a similar way to maternity, i.e. that it's a natural life stage that can be and should be supported by employers and government alike

  • Caregivers find it easy to find support and community

  • Providers of caregiving services are supported to create a stronger and more efficient ecosystem to help those who need care support the most
