About the project Edit

The website " Super Grandparents " connects elderly people with children, according to the desire of parents to have a grandparent figure in their children’s lives.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

"Super Grandparents" is the first website to offer free registration to members looking for inter-generational exchanges. This is an innovative idea that gives the “grandparent” generation an opportunity to connect with others through the use of ICT—a concept that often appears inaccessible to this generation.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

connect with youth. They can also use new-generation communication tools to express themselves. "Super Grandparents" providervice to 3 distinct generations of users: Grandparents at heart discover a new activity, which gives meaning to their everyday life and breaks their isolation when their family is absent or non-existent. Children have the opportunity to experience a unique and educational relationship with grandparents, when, in many cases, this experience is otherwise inaccessible. For parents who are orphans or separated from their own family, they are provided with a way of easing sense of guilt that may be experienced when their children ask for “grandma and grandpa.”

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The positive testimonies from the site’s parent and grandparent members speak for themselves, encouraging visitors to try Super Grandparents for themselves. Members can use the “tell a friend” to share an interesting profile with another member. Super Grandparents has gained popularity over the past 4 years through word-of-mouth alone and extensive coverage by the press shows that the site has already gained publicity.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

A personal experience stimulated the development of this project. The website creator did not have a close relationship with her own grandmother and she did not want the same for her children. Thus, the idea for this website was born.

What is the business model of this project? Edit

The Super-grandparents© website was developed by Sweet Family©; a LLC with a share capital of 8000 Euros, registered under the Registre du Commerce et des Sociétés Paris, France, represented by Ms. Christelle Levasseur, Founder and Publication Manager for the Super-grandparents website.
