SparkLabs Global: A New Seed-Stage Fund
“SparkLabs team was extremely value-add - they provided strategic advice, brokered relationships, and was 100%
committed to supporting us in building our company. They opened more doors for us than any other investor. SparkLabs is
an extension of your team. I would work with them in a heartbeat.” - Somrat Niyogi, Co-founder & CEO of Stitch
(acquired by SugarCRM)
“YJ and I, along with the entire team at KnowRe are ecstatic to be a part of the SparkLabs family, beginning from our
days in the accelerator. As an investor and mentor, SparkLabs brings a partnership that truly embodies the
characteristics of a family - being involved, bringing to bear ALL of one's resources, a genuine concern for someone
that goes far beyond self-interest. This type of partnership invariably leads to a deep trust. As entrepreneurs turned
investors, SparkLabs has a distinct understanding of both tectonic shifts in industry and the needs of, say a junior
marketing employee. This unique vertical acumen is extremely valuable and a critical component to growth.” -
David Joo, Co-founder & Co-CEO of KnowRe (www.knowre.com)
“Love working with these guys. Gives ‘sweat capital’ an entirely new meaning, going to all lengths around the world to
get us what we need.” - Akash Nigam, Co-founder & CEO of Blend (www.blend.la)
Testimonials: Our Entrepreneurs

it's easy to see why the fund has such an expansive network of founders, senior executives, and advisors who are always
there to help. If you're a founder who cares about scale, international expansion, or just adding an awesome extension
to your team - SparkLabs is your fund.” - Cathy Han, Co-founder & CEO of 42 (YC W14)

any form necessary. SparkLabs is an essential team member for companies who are looking to expand their brand
globally.” - Carlos Herrera, Co-founder & CEO of Petnet (www.petnet.io)
Testimonials: Our Entrepreneurs
“Suffice it to say that SparkLabs has played a significant role in the Squirrel story! Heck, they were even involved before we
became known as Squirrel! SparkLabs has taken on the role of investor, mentor, facilitator, talent source, sounding board
and all-round supporter of everything Squirrel as of day 1. Their commitment to our success has come through in every
interaction with the outspoken Frank Meehan and team at SparkLabs, and they've been a great partner on our amazing
journey so far. I look forward to continuing to see that partnership flourish as they help us work towards making financial
freedom a reality in the UK and beyond!” - Mutaz Qubbaj, Co-founder & CEO of Squirrel (www.squirrel.me)

entrepreneurs themselves so they provide extremely practical and realistic guidance. We fully trust that they will always
provide guidance from the entrepreneurial perspective, thus we continue to seek their advice regarding all aspects of
MangoPlate from vision, HR, operations and to funding. Their team has been nothing short of amazing for MangoPlate and
we are so blessed to be a part of the SparkLabs family.” - Joon Oh, Co-founder & Co-CEO of MangoPlate

Kingdoms (www.codekingdoms.com)
“The team at SparkLabs have struck a read chord with everyone here at Soundwave due to the fact that, first and foremost,
they are all entrepreneurs. We've really enjoyed tapping into their experience as we navigate our way through building
and scaling Soundwave. It's reassuring to know that they are always on the other end of the phone, email, sms, IM or
Skype!” - Brendan O’Driscoll, Co-founder & CEO of Soundwave (www.soundwave.com)
“SparkLabs' passion for Memebox inspired us to go global and expand to Silicon Valley. Their support was felt every step of
the way as we launched the Silicon Valley office and graduated from Y Combinator. Since their involvement we've
successfully closed both a Series A and B funding round, within a year. It has been a rewarding experience having
SparkLabs Global Ventures as our investor and partner as we continue to share our products with the global audience.” -
