Spark Capital Launches Start@Spark Initiative
Seed Funding Program to Stimulate Innovation and Entrepreneurship
"In this economic environment, continued innovation and entrepreneurship are as important as ever," said
Start@Spark focuses on the full value chain of media and technology, including content, online services and applications, technology platforms and infrastructure. Also, the program will periodically focus on specific sectors of interest as determined by Spark Capital, such as disruptive innovations surrounding open platforms, education and financial services. Along with venture funding, the chosen entrepreneurs will have direct access to the Spark Capital partners and legal counsel focused on entrepreneurs and early-stage technology companies.
How to Apply
Entrepreneurs interested in the Start@Spark program should apply online to qualify for an in-person presentation with members of the Spark Capital team. Start-ups will be judged on creativity, thought-leadership, wide-reaching but focused ideas and the qualifications of the founding team. Recognizing the importance of time in bringing new ideas to market, Spark ensures a rapid review of all applications, and a streamlined process for applicants invited to present at Spark's offices.
