given a number of the largest media buying groups are UK
based, and for AI given the PhD outputs from the likes of

“In my mind, the two most important factors that makes Seoul
one of the best ecosystems for startups is its people and
infrastructure. In a city where 40% of the population of South
Korea is living in Seoul, the population has experienced internet
speeds years ahead of any other city in the world which in turn
has produced a technically savvy work force and customer base.
It is no coincidence that many businesses such as SNS and
mobile social gaming were successful in Korea many years
before it became globally popular. Because it is the most
connected city in the world, entrepreneurs can offer
services now that may not be possible anywhere else
until later when internet speed and/or user adoption catches
up.”

We are a new seed-stage fund with partners in Silicon Valley, London, Tel Aviv, Singapore,
and Seoul. Since December 2013, we have invested in 58 companies. Our global approach means that
we can pick the best deals in the right geographies where the sectors are hottest. For example, London has
become the leader in fintech, deep tech is growing fast in Scandinavia and South Korea, cybersecurity in
Israel and ecommerce in Asia.
“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)

“SparkLabs is an amazing team of investors. The partners are experienced operators from around the globe who have
helped us with not only key business issues, but also bouncing new ideas. Everyone is intelligent and charismatic, so
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)
(www. 42technologies.com)
“SparkLabs has been an amazing partner for us - they set the bar high, but have helped us every step of the way. Not only
has the SparkLabs team provided market-vetted advice and feedback, but they’ve been out front in making key
introductions and resources. Iodine is proud to be part of the SparkLabs clan.” - Thomas Goetz, Co-founder & CEO of
Iodine (www.iodine.com)
“The partners at SparkLabs are amazing people and have been a motivating force since the early days of Petnet. They
are forward thinking in the way they think about the internet of things and how it will shape they way people shop for
consumables. They have an expansive global network of executives, advisors, and investors who are ready to help in
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)

“Code Kingdoms is delighted to part of the SparkLabs family. The partners understand entrepreneurs because they are
entrepreneurs themselves - the guidance and support provide is always insightful, relevant and timely. Having SparkLabs
as an investor has been a significant contributor to the growth of our company and also provided immense learning
opportunities from fellow portfolio companies and wider network.” - Ross Targett, Co-founder & CEO of Code
Kingdoms (www.codekingdoms.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.” -
Dino Ha, Co-founder & Co-CEO of Memebox (YC W14) (www.memebox.com)
“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)

In a city where 40% of the population of South Korea is living in Seoul, the population has experienced internet speeds years ahead of any other city in the world which in turn has produced a technically savvy work force and customer base. It is no coincidence that many businesses such as SNS and mobile social gaming were successful in Korea many years before it became globally popular. Because it is the most connected city in the world, entrepreneurs can offer services now that may not be possible anywhere else until later when internet speed and/or user adoption catches up.” Chris Koh, Co-founder of Coupang On Seoul Chris is Co-founder of Coupang, which is the leading ecommerce company in South Korea.
