About Us

Spark Ventures builds partnerships that lift communities out of poverty.


Spark Ventures has lasting impact by directing human and financial resources to partners around the world to provide health, education and jobs. By focusing our resources in areas of business, job creation and capacity building, we seek to have lasting and sustainable impact.

Spark Ventures headquarters are in Chicago. Our social-impact partners are grassroots organizations serving children and their families in developing countries. To date, we have three international projects in ZambiaNicaragua and Mexico. We work with these partners to create lasting change and ensure the most vulnerable children in their communities have quality access to education, nutrition and healthcare. It’s a holistic approach to international development intended to address dependence on foreign aid, job creation and empowerment of new leaders in emerging economies.


Consider joining us by investing financially, attending an event, or traveling with us. We would also love to hear from you with any questions or comments. Please reach out to Kristin Schrepferman by e-mail ( or by calling, 773-293-6710.
