One Spark Postponement

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, One Spark, Inc., One Spark Ventures and Bold Events, LLC have jointly decided to postpone the One Spark 2017 Innovation Festival. This year’s event has been rescheduled to take place in the spring of 2018 on Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7, at EverBank Field. A kickoff concert will be hosted by Bold Events at the new Daily’s Place amphitheater on Thursday, April 5.

One Spark and Bold Events hope that postponing the Innovation Festival until April will give potential Creators the chance to recover and resume their work with the same passion, energy and conviction needed to participate in the event.

What is One Spark?

Idea Validation

One Spark is the World’s Largest Focus Group.  Creators interact with a diverse demographic of people from the community which, if performed independently, would be too costly.  Feedback from the community assists Creators in deciding how, and if, to move forward.

Making Connections

One Spark provides innovators with the ability to connect with the community and meet people who can help advance their ideas via personal or professional networks. But for One Spark most Creators would never have access to these networks.


Crowdfunding was the primary purpose of One Spark at its founding. Billed as “The World’s Largest Crowdfunding Festival” One Spark encouraged the community to support its Creators, i.e. entrepreneurs, via donations. One Spark now supports whatever crowdfunding platform the creator chooses.
