Jamie Ratner is the founder and CEO of CertifiKid, a daily deal website that lets families discover great deals from local businesses. For years, she wrote a successful Washington-area blog that helped moms find deals and new things to try locally. Countless daily readers turned to her for advice on local products, services, restaurants, and events because she is just like them – a working mom raising a family and always searching for a good bargain.
Ratner founded CertifiKid to fill a huge void in the daily deal space. Starting from the DC area, CertifiKid quickly expanded to the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh markets. In 2013, it acquired Los Angeles and Chicago-based FamilyFinds and Atlanta-based FamGrab to reach more parents and business owners. From being a household name in the Greater Washington-Baltimore area, CertifiKid is now known nationally and has been featured in several media outlets.
In 2011, Ratner was named one of The Washington Business Journal’s “Top 40 Under 40 Brightest Young Business Leaders.”
