Ignite your business

Every fire starts with one spark. Along with oxygen and fuel. The same goes for business venture: All you need is a spark to ignite promising entrepreneurship. Along with ambition, inspiration, know-how and a solid base.

The story

How to spark growth of fresh, ambitious and innovative companies in an effective way. Sparkplug Ventures answers this question by sharing knowledge, networks and financial expertise. In return for a minority share we add value from any point of view directed to a successful future.

Our long-term consulting and coaching empowers young entrepreneurs to affect world-wide challenges and maximizes their growth opportunities.



For sparkplug a personal click or spark with the team of entrepreneurs is essential. On top of that, their vision, passion and dedication will have to match our business philosophy and our added value as a sparring partner should be considerable.

To spark the right business ventures, we screen solutions for sector-wide global challenges: The venture has covered its proof-of-concept principle and its product reaches development completion or explores market introduction. The business model is scalable and repeatable with a value proposition that has competitive advantage.


Sparkplug is seeking for long-lasting partnerships with great new ventures. Therefore we have set up a thorough screening protocol in which we screen and select ventures within an intended period of 8 weeks.

The main part of the screening process are the diverse meetings with the Sparkplug team. Key information such as a one-pager and/or a pitch deck and a detailed business plan will play an important role.
