About Us

Spark Growth is a consulting firm committed to helping organizations grow by driving significant and sustained change.

In a global and competitive market, businesses and communities know that “smart” is crucial and time is at a premium. In today’s information-rich world, insight is invaluable and context is critical.

At Spark Growth, we believe that people and businesses thrive in communities.

We know that you cannot have economic development without an educated workforce. Quality education produces talent, which in turn attracts talent and capital.

We imagine that your city, your region, is celebrated as a great place to start and grow both a business and a family. Can you? Because we can.

We imagine education systems that establish a quality foundation for lifetime learning and develop relevant 21st-century skills. We see our students actively pursuing lifetime learning, some staying here, others returning here with what they learned while away and becoming a part of this expanding talent pool and ecosystem. We can imagine this, can you?

We imagine communities that respect and care for our natural resources. These communities foster quality of life across all socio-economic sectors, and inclusivity, diversity, and equity are not an afterthought.
