About Us

Why Spark xyz?

Spark xyz’s improvements to the traditional model include incorporating users’ dynamic and personalized information, which allows for faster and more accurate results to connect companies with only the best and relevant talent.

The current recruiting solutions on the market today have taken stagnant classifieds and applied them to an online portal. Spark xyz has been able to improve this model by adding in dynamic and personalized information to reach the best talent, the fastest.

Why a Collective?

The deeper we dug into the startup ecosystem, the more fragmented it became.

The options that accelerators, incubators, and universities have for operating their respective programs are limited, clunky, expensive, or occasionally don't even work.

We created the collective to lift this burden, provide beautiful user friendly software, all while creating an incredible talent pool for qualified startups to pull from.

Our Mission

We are here to move the needle on founder failure.
