“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

If you're a founder who cares about scale, international expansion, or just adding an awesome extension to your team - SparkLabs is your fund.”

“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

“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.

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.”
