Marc Sparks is what most folks refer to as a serial entrepreneur, but he is also one of the most well-known venture capitalists in Dallas. Sparks is widely known for his most recent endeavor, which was moving his office space in order to make collaboration easier and more fruitful for entrepreneurs.
Sparks believes that collaboration could be either very poor or it could prove to be super productive in the right environment. Transforming his office space just for helping startups was his sole purpose for moving.
Sparks wanted to optimize the time that entrepreneurs were spending in his office space from day one. Sparks believes that the only way to do this is through an office space that inspires entrepreneurs to think creatively as well as to give them enough space that their entire team can sit and become a “think tank”, while being able to face each other comfortably.
In a recent press release, Sparks talks about what it would be like to try to think creatively in a dark warehouse with no windows to look out of. It’s not very inspiring is it? It isn’t likely that anyone would be inspired, let alone to think about the positive side of their business in a dark and cold environment without windows.
As an entrepreneur that has started multiple businesses, Sparks knows that it takes a strong incubation period in order for a team to be effective in their game plan.
The incubation period gives entrepreneurs the guidance they need for the legal side of their business, design, funding, and much more. The purpose of the collaboration is to gain fresh insight from other entrepreneurs into what is happening, what is changing, and a big part of that is being able to get over the pitfalls and disappointments along the way as well.
Marc Sparks is the Founder and CEO of Timber Creek Capital, and his passion is taking great ideas and turning them into a viable business opportunity. His book, They Can’t Eat You, has inspired millions to never give up, and Sparks candidly shares his journey with the reader.
Sparks enjoys working with charities like Habitat for Humanity, as well as working on his own non-profit organization. Sparkey’s Kids donates one thousand laptops to at-risk children through American Can! Academy.
