Ladislas de Toldi
Ladislas de Toldi is the CEO and cofounder of Leka, a startup set on changing the way children with development disorders learn, play, and progress through a robotic smart toy of the same name. Ladislas has a long history with exceptional children, from families and friends to volunteering in several organizations, so he’s very familiar with the cause. In 2011, while at university, he discovered that his design teacher’s son was diagnosed with autism. Together with classmate (and eventual co-founder of Leka) Marine Couteau, they started working with their teacher to develop a toy that would both help his son learn and communicate, and thus Leka was born. Ladislas graduated from the Ecole de Biologie Industrielle with a degree in Biotech Engineering.
