關於SparkLabs

我們是一家源自矽谷的創投基金,在全球進行種子輪投資並加速。

SparkLabs 所有創始合夥人都曾在擁有共同創辦、參與初創、或參與早期投資知名新創公司,如 Siri, DeepMind 等。
我們都曾經從毫無資源,一步步募得天使資金,並接續成功獲得更多投資。我們比誰都能體會創業的沉浮和理想,也加深我們對於孕育下一代國際創業家的渴望。
SparkLabs 除專注協助團隊服務快速擴張外,我們致力協助團隊募得後續投資。成立至今,參與 SparkLabs 加速器項目的新創團隊裡有超過 79% 獲得接續投資 (follow-on investment),在國際創投、加速器產業裡是很高的比率。

SparkLabs 於 2017 年來到台北,期望幫助更多台灣新創走向全球!台灣充滿活力與能量,擁有發展成為偉大公司所需的條件。在這塊新創生態已蓬勃發展的土壤上,我們相信透過 SparkLabs 創投加速器計劃、整合全球資源和經驗豐富的團隊,將能幫助更多創業家在創業第一天就找到拓展國際的機會!

  • 4. 你們在尋找什麼樣的新創團隊?

    首先,我們看重具備潛力成功機會拓展全球市場的專業團隊。 其次,我們在意團隊是否具有破壞性創新思維,這些想法是否有機會落實、進而改變我們的生活。 一般來說,我們偏好擁有兩位或兩位以上共同創辦人的團隊。

  • 5. 我們一定要是剛起步的團隊嗎?

    完全不用。我們也會選擇已經成功募資或是獲利的團隊,真正的關鍵依然是新創團隊展現出來的創新能力,以及跳脫既有市場、精進產品的潛力。只要是想要更快速成長的公司,我們都歡迎!

    通常,我們一屆會挑選 8 到 12 個新創團隊加入加速器計劃。

  • 8. Demo Day 會有誰參加?

    我們的 Demo Day 將齊聚本土及國際創投等一流投資人,當天也將聚集國際媒體和社群領袖到場,新創團隊在曝光之餘亦有機會獲得更多事業合作甚至是投資機會!

    當然!當你確定入選 SparkLabs 加速器,我們將協助你認識 SparkLabs 所投資的團隊與校友們。我們十分鼓勵和樂見團隊之間的交流與合作!

  • 10. 你們是否只在尋找會拓展至美國市場的新創?

    絕對不會。我們在尋找所有目標定位在國際市場的新創團隊,無論是中國、日本、韓國、東南亞、歐洲、大洋洲、南美洲、......任何你想去、有使用者在的市場,都可以!

  • 11. 我需要具備流利的英文能力 (或是精通我公司的所在國家的語言) 嗎?

    精通英文並非必要條件,但我們強烈建議團隊中需要有成員能夠以英文 (或是公司所在國家的語言) 進行流利的溝通。英文是協助交流想法的溝通工具。

  • 12. 我們的創辦人不是台灣人,可以申請嗎?

    我們歡迎來自全世界的創辦人,無關國籍。

  • 13. 我的年齡是否會影響篩選?

    比起年齡,我們更重視你們的熱情、決心和執行力!
