toddl.co is a VC-backed (Fondo Bolsa Social and Banco Sabadell) tech startup whose mission is to transform the way families and providers of kids’ activities connect. We do this through a suite of powerful technology solutions to help parents navigate the complex and highly fragmented world of extracurricular activities and to empower activity providers to grow their businesses.

toddl.co makes it easy for parents to find and book high quality enrichment opportunities for their kids. Launched 2.5 years ago, we are now the fastest growing marketplace for kids’ classes and camps in Spain, with a catalog of 2,000+ activities, 22,000 parents using the marketplace, and hundreds of providers advertising their classes through the platform.

At the start of 2023, we released a new all-in-one, cloud-based SaaS tool to help organisers of kids’ activities streamline their bookings, payments and client management. The software is fully integrated with the toddl.co marketplace, giving providers an easy way to reach new customers and freeing up time to focus on their businesses and the families they serve.


Our company is remote-first, but most of the team is based in Barcelona. While we are currently focused on the Spanish market, we have big ambitions and aspire to build Europe’s largest technology platform for kids’ activities.

Our founding team and advisory board members come from tech, entrepreneurship and finance backgrounds and have experience in starting, scaling and exiting ventures. Some of the companies we represent include eBay, Rocket Internet, Wallapop and Payflow. We are international (US, Canada, UK, Spain), and multilingual (English, French, Spanish, Catalan, Euskara).
