SPARK = Stimulating, Potential, Accessing, Resource & Knowledge
SPARK helps people turn their business concepts into reality, by linking them to the right local resources to get on the path to success.
We offer access to classes, and resources, entrepreneurial events, and mentoring programs with an emphasis on cultivating a nurturing community.
The SPARK Launch Program will help you develop your ideas into a business model.
Using curriculum from Co-starters, this business development course will allow you to define your business and get it up and running.
Meet and work with other aspiring entrepreneurs who are facing similar challenges with their start-ups; develop relationships with mentors who have already experienced the pains of starting a business; and walk away with a new perspective on how to launch your business idea into a reality.
Holyoke Soup is a dinner celebrating creative projects in Holyoke.
For a $5 minimum donation, attendees receive soup, salad, bread, and hear four presentations ranging from business ideas, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology, and much more.
After hearing the four ideas attendees will vote for the project they like best. The presenter that receives the most votes goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project.
Winners come back to a future Soup dinner to inform their community on their project’s progress.
Ready to get involved, there is no time better than now to get started. Send us your info and we will be in contact about how to take your next steps.
