Not only is he successful but he also believes in giving back to others since he has been blessed with the incredible gift of prosperity but he knows that none of his business ventures would have come to fruition without hard work, sacrifice and determination.
He has created a social innovation challenge through Spark Tank. This allows contestants to enter a challenge and come up with an idea or product used to help others by funding the initial cost for the startup.
There not only does this open the doors to charitable work to help those in need but it allows people to compete for the prize.
Each group which normally consists of small groups of people or individuals with ideas have he chance to design a business plan or product and give detailed information to determine how it can be helpful in changing the lives of others or help the environment.
The idea behind this is to light the spark or ignite the fuse behind some creative innovative ideas and then bringing them to fruition hence the name “Spark Tank”.
They then get judged and one lucky group or person will be allotted a grant set aside to help the idea or dream come alive. Marc Sparks is not a man who wants to just hand money out he wants to teach people how to become something and get them out of their current situation that is bringing them down or is not allowing them to become something.
Many of his organizations include camps for kids that would not be able to attend without his contributions, others include housing and education helping people who have maybe been down on their luck or are in a rut and helps them to get into a good place, have their life back as well as bring about new innovative ideas into the community.
