About Us

The idea of SPARQ* sprouted from our lovely founder, Josie.  She’s a hard-working individual who has juggled many things at once. At the time, she was studying full-time to get her Bachelors, working part-time for a communication agency, and in a relationship. She found herself and her partner longing to have more special ‘date nights’ together. But when they actually found the time to schedule one and the day came around, they went to the same restaurant they usually go to, or just stayed home and binged a show on Netflix. Don’t get us wrong, being cozy at home and catching up on your go-to shows is amazing, but venturing outside the box and creating new memories brings a different type of adrenaline beauty for the relationship. Josie introduced the idea to the rest of our team, and we all fell in love at first hear. 

A couple months later, and we joined the Utrecht Incubator to validate the idea. And oh boy, it was an adventure in itself. We’ve researched, tested, and iterated, and tested, and iterated, and tested, and iterated, and we could continue this more for a couple more lines. Meanwhile, we had hit a little roadblock. Maybe you’ve heard of it? COVID-19. Spending quality time with your partner has a new definition now. We took this challenge, and realized it opened up more doors as we could connect with individuals and small businesses around the world by designing COVID-19 friendly dates at home! That brings us to now. We are beyond exciting to design your next date and bring a SPARQ* to your quality time. 💛
