signupgenius media mentions press news

We love to hear how people are using SignUpGenius to make a difference in the world, and it's always fun to see our online sign up tool featured in the media. Check out this roundup of genius mentions — including a national cooking magazine, popular Facebook video series, national business outlet and national newspaper publisher.

Taste of Home 

The popular cooking magazine featured SignUpGenius in the article "7 Mistakes to Avoid at a Bake Sale." Here's their advice on making your bake sale a sweet success:

"Organize a sign-up with categories so you can control what's coming: a paper sign-up sheet, a group email, or be really tech-savvy with a free, online tool like SignUpGenius which shows folks the available slots for treats (and supplies like napkins and plates, perfect for folks that aren't kitchen savvy) and can send email reminders."


SignUpGenius COO/CMO Angel Rutledge shared why keeping a learner's mindset is key for women entrepreneurs:

"Be somebody who loves to learn…For women right now, there may be pressure to become a CEO, or to get on the Board. Wherever you are, be excited about where you are now. Learn whatever you can right there, and it will be applicable."

Holderness Family

Making it into a Holderness Family video has been on our bucket list from the early days of SignUpGenius. In the funny family's "Back to School Wine Pairing" video, mom Kim shares her plight of signing up for too many committees using "SignUpEvilGenius." Cheers to the new school year!

Working Mother

The popular site for working moms named SignUpGenius one of "The 13 Best Apps to Make Back-to-School Season a Breeze for Working Moms." Here's what they said:

"If you're class mom, PTA president, chair of the neighborhood steering committee and founder of your local political club, you need SignUpGenius. The app makes it easy to get groups of people to sign up for everything from making cupcakes to registering voters."

Gatehouse Media's Family magazine (print)

The newspaper publisher featured insight from SignUpGenius on planning a successful carpool for the new school year:

"Carpooling benefits both kids and parents," said Kate White, director of marketing at SignUpGenius. "It gives kids a chance to establish and deepen friendships and gives parents less time in the car. Spending a set amount of time in the car lets kids and parents connect in the midst of a busy schedule. Carpooling also cuts down on carbon emissions by reducing the number of cars on the road, plus it saves money on gas."


The website spotlighting Charlotte's startup scene featured the story of SignUpGenius in "How a tech-savvy soccer dad turned a snack snafu into SignUpGenius." They wrote:

"Organizing sports and church and nonprofit work and school commitments was, in a word, 'frustrating.' It inspired Rutledge to take action. He built SignUpGenius, a free online software tool for volunteer management and event planning, in 2008 and has grown it to a major brand, drawing 77.2 million visitors to the SignUpGenius site last year alone."
