FOUNDED IN (Year): 2021

FOUNDER’S NAME: Nicolas Stephan & Jakob Stephan

THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:

Sparrks is a bootstrap startup based in Berlin, Germany. It offers highly effective business coaching solutions for managers across all corporate levels. Without us, individuals seeking to develop their leadership skills have to go through 10-16 sessions to complete a coaching journey. With Sparrks, that journey consists of 2 to 4 coaching sessions, a solution that builds knowledge better and faster simultaneously. Customized to individual’s specific needs and present problems, Sparrks delivers premium value at a 50-75% lower cost than market average.

THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:

Sparrks was conceived on a string of Sunday brunches where we found ourselves frequently griping about work challenges.

LESSONS TO SHARE: What 3 key features from your startup you’d like to share with aspiring entrepreneurs?:

The business coaching industry standard is now at 10-16 sessions per individual. That keeps most companies and their junior and middle management away from the benefits of coaching. However, if well targeted, 2 to 4 sessions will do the job. With a strong focus on results, Sparrks delivers the same outcomes at a 50-75% lower cost than the industry’s.
