At Toddle, we are on a mission to help schools around the world deliver better learning. We are a team of 2x founders – before founding Toddle, we set up a network of preschools and schools in India. We continue to operate these preschools and schools as it gives us a unique vantage point into the challenges faced by schools.

Our belief is that real impact in education can only be achieved by improving schools. That’s because children spend more than 80% of their learning time in school and schools are here to stay as schools are not just about teaching & learning, they also play a pivotal social role in our lives. So while most Edtech companies are trying to solve for education by working outside the school system, we think that the focus needs to be on taking our schools to the next level.

Our first product is a collaboration platform for teaching teams – we say that Toddle is to teaching, what Figma is to design. In its current version, Toddle empowers teachers to work together and better across all stages of the teaching-learning process – right from curriculum planning and assessments to progress-tracking and family communication.

Here are some key facts about us:

  1. Currently used by 1,800+ schools and 100,000+ educators from 100+ countries
  2. Global revenue – 40% from Americas, 30% from EMEA, 30% from APAC
  3. NRR > 115%
  4. NPS > 70
  5. Annual churn < 5%
  6. Inbound led GTM motion fuelled by positive word of mouth

We love solving for

  1. Creating delightful experiences that help teaching teams collaborate better & be more effective
  2. Building tools that help teachers personalise learning for their students
  3. Helping teachers around the world connect with each other meaningfully

We are at a series A stage right now, growing fast in the SAAS Ed-tech space, and have been funded by Sequoia, Matrix, Beenext, and Better Capital among others.
