BabySparks, a Plantation, FL-based technology platform that supports early development through meaningful play, closed a $2M seed funding round.
The round was led by Ocean Azul Partners, joined by Miami Angels, Kairos, Marstar Investments (Steven and Brian Finn), Lou Kreisberg, and Steve Goodman.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by Gustavo Rodriguez, Founder and CEO, BabySparks develops technology-enabled tools to allow parents and caregivers, in multiple languages, support the early development of their young children. Using a proprietary smart adaptive technology, the platform learns each child’s development profile, identifies specific needs, and then provides parents and caregivers with a customized program to support those needs.
It has more than 3.5 million downloads in 180 countries.
The company was selected as part of the Miami 500 Startups inaugural Growth Cohort.
