Primary Programs and Projects

Spark Wednesdays

Spark Wednesdays are the monthly meetings of the community of entrepreneurs of one city, where they share topics, stories and resources that are of collective interest.

Goals:
• To create a community of integrated entrepreneurs in the city.
• To motivate the entrepreneurial spirit among the participants.
• To connect entrepreneurs and amplify their network of contacts in the community.
• To hear stories and learn lessons of successful entrepreneurs and from others who are making the attempt.
• To facilitate information and access to useful resources.
• To promote entrepreneurship as a philosophy of life.

The Sparkathon

The Sparkathon, formerly Entrepreneur Spark Forum, arises from an intense motivational encounter in which entrepreneurs, some successful and others trying to be, share their life trajectories, helping the participants visualize new horizons, awakening an interest in pursuing their dreams and taking action to this effect.

The event takes place in four to eight hour sessions, in which a program of activities is developed based on interractions of different formats that guarantee a very active and entertaining dynamic, which seeks to ensure that by the end of the meeting the participants are submerged into a world in which exploring new opportunities is converted into their philosophy of life.
