BabySparks announced Friday that it has closed a $2 million seed round led by Ocean Azul Partners. BabySparks is a Plantation-based startup that created a personalized activity platform that supports a child’s early development through meaningful play.
Because it takes a village to raise a child — parents, grandparents, teachers, nanny, siblings, etc – founder Gustavo Rodriguez wanted to build an app that they all could easily use to support that child. Using a proprietary smart adaptive technology, BabySparks’ platform learns each child’s development profile, identifies specific needs, and then provides parents and caregivers with a customized program — typically 8 to 10 activities a day — to support those needs. Its app, available on iOS and Android and available in multiple languages, has been already been downloaded more than 3.5 million times across 180 countries.
