The business world is a cutthroat environment. Everyone is trying to get to the top, and they will do whatever it takes to make it. Even in the midst of the businessmen that are pushing their way to the top, there are kind gentlemen like Marc Sparks that believes in playing it forward.
I feel encouraged when I see how someone like this is able to pass along the wisdom that has he has about building a business. What is even more impressive is the $5,000 that he gives away to through Spark Tank for the winner with the best idea and business plan.
Socially conscious businesses are often hit and miss. Some people have ideas that the world will embrace; others produce business plans that just don’t hit the mark with society. The first thing that a non-profit organization has to do is gain the trust of those that they are acquiring funds from. That is what makes the Spark Tank such a valuable competition for entrepreneurs. It is a very valuable way for entrepreneurs to get money to promote their organization and fund the staffing.
According to GoodReads, Marc Sparks is helping others because he has gone through the hardships of building a ton of different businesses. Before Marc Sparks came onto my radar I had never heard of the term serial entrepreneur. I really didn’t know that it was a thing. Now I know that serial investors and entrepreneurs take on a lot of different business challenges.
I love the way that Marc Sparks has made people take interest in putting their best business ideas to the task. There are times when a business profession may try to put a business out to the public and they will do so without putting their all into it.
First impressions are everything in the business world. If entrepreneurs put their businesses out there without giving it their best, customers may fail to give the business a second chance. What Marc Sparks has done as a venture capitalist is put himself in the shoes of the entrepreneur.
He has made himself quite helpful by putting these businesses in competition. It is like he is giving the business a trial run before it gets further into the mainstream.
Sparks gets the competition going. There are some finalists that make it to the top three. The businesses that do not make it this far know that there are some improvements that need to be made. Other entrepreneurs that get into the top three will also discover that they are doing something right, but they still may have some improvements to make as well. All finalists get the benefit of increase exposure from Spark Tank competitions.
