Galore, a San Francisco, CA-based mobile application that allows parents to book activities for their children and empowers local providers to reach new customers, raised $1.65m in seed funding.
The round was led by Norwest Venture Partners and DCM Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to further develop mobile apps for parents and tools for providers, and add more partners in the Bay Area and beyond.
Founded in 2015 by Jeff Levinsohn and Max Haines-Stiles, Galore provides a platform that allows parents to discover and book activities, classes, camps, “date night” child care and more tailored to their families based on location, age group and interest. Galore also enables local businesses to reach new customers through its large community of parents who use the mobile app. Its free software lets providers manage all their online registrations, payment and customer communications. For individual instructors, Galore enables them to make extra money by directly connecting with parents to offer new activities for kids.
The service is currently available in the San Francisco Bay Area on both iOS and Android.
To date, the company has partnered with more than 125 providers to offer upward of 3,000 options each month.
