Almost 70 creators from eight states gathered for the first day of One Spark 2018 at Daily’s Place Amphitheater. The event brought entrepreneurs from as far away as Maine, while 57 creators came from all over Florida.
“They represent the diversity of ideas we wanted,” said Chris Carter, president of One Spark Ventures.
Creators are grouped in five categories – MindSpark, TechSpark, HealthSpark, LifeSpark and WorldSpark. They compete in the Spark Off, a judged pitch competition, and they compete to be crowd favorites, measured through online audience voting.
