I love one spark, buy since projects sign up in tiers, I feel like stage 5 companies shouldn't be in the crowdfund. They are paying to advertise by entry, but don't then smother the other projects that are truly new and innovative. Many of the highest payouts are prefunded projects that hand out free purchased items to get money in votes.

ATTENTION #OneSpark creators - make sure your creator number is linked to your profile. I want everyone to get their votes. Mine (20944) pulls up wrong creator first. http://t.co/Skj57vpXxz

Our friends at Dalton Agency handled our social media throughout the festival and they've written a blog that details how a groundswell of support and enthusiasm helped spark a global conversation!

Forbes has taken notice of One Spark!
At the OneSpark Festival, startups are crowdfunding the old fashioned way: in a crowd.

There's nothing more frustrating than circling a parking lot waiting for that elusive spot to open up. That won't be the case at One Spark. We've been working diligently to ensure that parking at One Spark is not only easy, but FREE! 

Take a look at the plethora of parking options for One Spark 2014. http://goo.gl/gejnuM

Story
Tagline
The world's crowdfunding festival for art, music, science and technology
Introduction

One Spark is a five-day event for creators. From April 17 - 21, 2013, artists, entrepreneurs, and innovators will display projects in a 1.5 mile radius, multi-venue gallery in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. One Spark is a belief that game-changers emerge from dorm rooms, garages, and small studios. It’s the community behind great ideas. It’s your chance to submit and decide on the next big thing. It’s the opportunity to get involved, be inspired, connect and collaborate.

  • Open to All: Anyone can be a creator; One Spark venues will be made up of nearly anywhere and everywhere in the urban core.
  • Grassroots & Independent: One Spark is built on the premise that the next great creation will likely come from a garage, small studio, or dorm room. Creators will pair up with venues, independently, on our website. Our organization does not select any of the creators or venues that make up the event.
  • Empowered Public: The $250,000 One Spark fund will be distributed based on public vote; the public can also contribute directly to the entrant in any amount.
  • 5 Packed Days: During the actual event, we'll have the creator showcases, speakers, culinary experiences, music, and what we like to call "spectacles."
$250K Guaranteed Crowdfund based on public votes

One Spark connects ideas with funding. Raise money for your project in two ways:

  1. Win votes and snag a slice of the $250,000 guaranteed crowdfund. Crowdfund monies will be distributed by popular vote. So say you receive 10% of the vote. You would receive 10% of the fund or $25,000.
  2. Dress to impress individual contributors. Visitors can contribute any amount to any project. While $5, $25, or $100 may seem incremental, these direct contributions add up quickly.
