Spark Capital - Start@Spark provides seed funding

Sent to me by Jonathan Lee.  I think this may be a repost - but a quick search and I couldn't find it.  So posting again.


Spark Capital - Start@Spark provides seed funding

In uncertain economic times, it is imperative to continue to support entrepreneurs and companies at their earliest stages. Although access to early stage capital may have become scarce in recent months, it is precisely at these times that entrepreneurs start attacking nascent opportunities and begin building the game changing companies of the future.

For this reason, Spark Capital is aggressively seeking to make seed investments in promising early stage companies in the New York and Boston areas. Through this program, entrepreneurs who are starting companies in the conflux of media, technology, and entertainment can be granted up to $250,000 to quickly accelerate their progress.

Whether you are a seasoned founder or a first time entrepreneur, we want to hear from you to see if we can partner to build something great.

What are the criteria for new applicants?

Please see our application page for the specific criteria we are looking for when we evaluate opportunities. We generally look for companies that have a clearly articulated problem that is big and meaningful. We look for teams that have the tools to quickly hit the ground running upon our investment and have a good sense of how they would utilize their capital to achieve specific milestones. Most importantly, we want to build a long relationship with entrepreneurs that are hungry, driven, and we enjoy working with.

Geographically, Spark Capital invests in companies across the United States and Internationally. As a rule, we focus on finding the most attractive investment opportunities and do not confine ourselves to specific locations. However, for Start@Spark, we are initially targeting companies in the New York and Boston areas. We believe that this is the best way for us to actively partner with entrepreneurs at the earliest stages of their company’s development. In time, we may expand the program to extend to other geographies as well.
