What Others are Saying

“At first, I thought Spark Saratoga would be just another incubator type of platform that over promised and under delivered. That’s not the case here. They really do care about the upstate economy and giving businesses like mine real answers and solutions. By connecting me to their partner, Ureeka, what I found was a real community of helpers with tangible tools, resources and people committed to my success as a startup and small business. Through my 1:1 mentor relationship, I was able to solidify my brand, business and growth plan. It’s been pivotal to my success thus far and will continue to be a vital resource as we grow.”

“Spark Saratoga has made me feel like I have a lifeline to super smart business minds who want to help me succeed. They’ve delivered on their promise to help companies like mine by connecting us to the best of the best talent by bringing a partner with the caliber of Ureeka to the region. I had a question on navigating my marketing strategy through the COVID crisis. I had an invaluable coaching with a Ureeka business coach within 48 hours of creating my profile. This does not happen to small businesses– usually I’m calling in a favor or strapping my cash. Ureeka is like that super smart connected friend that just really wants to help.”

“I had heard the buzz throughout the community about the collaboration between Spark Saratoga and Ureeka.  I was introduced to the program by Ryan Van Amburgh and quickly became a fan.  It’s a tremendous tool that quickly brings the business community together.  Business is changing post COVID19 and the world has become virtual.  I am enthusiastic about helping businesses at all stages balance Strategy, Finance and Culture and I look forward to continuing my journey through this portal. 

Finally, the ability to post, network and chat with like minded mentors and coaches in a secure portal!  Thank you Spark Saratoga!”

“Being an entrepreneur can be lonely, where it feels like we’re on an island by ourselves. It’s rare to have someone in our inner circle to turn to for feedback and advice that has been in a similar situation. This is the value I see with Ureeka. No longer are entrepreneurs limited to their inner circle. Entrepreneurs with questions and coaches with that expertise are now just one message away.”
