The Riveter is teaming up with another female-focused Seattle startup to make it easier for its members to secure childcare.

Members of the co-working space are now eligible for a free six-month subscription to Poppy, a company that offers on-demand childcare from vetted caregivers.

Poppy’s childcare rates start at $20 per hour after the waived membership fee, which ordinarily costs $8 a month. The company launched in 2015 and raised early capital from Seattle angel investors, Madrona Venture Group, and Y Combinator. Poppy CEO Avni Patel Thompson is a vocal advocate for women in entrepreneurship as are The Riveter co-founders Amy Nelson and Kim Pelota.

The Riveter launched its first co-working space geared toward women in March in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood and expanded to Fremont in September.

“Childcare has been a request from much of our community and we’re thrilled to have found a partner that shares in our mission,” Nelson said in a statement.
