A note on our culture

We’re building a new kind of company at Seed&Spark. One where you don’t have to check your humanity at the door. We’re cultivating a culture that’s empowering and equally fosters personal and professional growth. A culture that prioritizes getting to the best idea, regardless of where it originated.
