We are committed to helping every child reach his or her full potential," said Gustavo Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of BabySparks, in a statement. Citing a statistic that 85% of children's brains are formed by age 3, Rodriguez also implored parents and caregivers to ensure a positive impact on their development.

The BabySparks app, available in multiple languages, has been downloaded more than 3.5 million downloads in 180 countries. The platform offers individualized learning tailored to each child’s development profile through its proprietary smart adaptive technology.

"It is simply amazing to see what Gustavo and his team have been able to accomplish to date," said Salomon Sredni, Partner at Ocean Azul Partners in a statement. "We love how helpful their platform is to parents and caregivers, and love to hear the praise they get from users worldwide. Helping children reach their potential is no easy task but they are clearly getting there one child at a time!"
