Conferences and events held by and for the brightest minds from around the world can be exceptionally dull and stuffy; yet that is not the case for Spark Camp. Created as an alternative to such boring symposiums, Spark Camp allows guests to connect on a more personal level while still exchanging high level ideas and thoughts in a stimulating environment.

Founded by tech and media veterans Amy Webb, CEO of Webbmedia Group, Amanda Michel of Guardian U.S., Matt Thompson of NPR, Andrew Pergam of the Washington Post, and Jennifer 8. Lee, formerly of the New York Times, Spark Camp is funded by generous donations from the Knight Foundation, Google and the Nieman Foundation and more. The annual event focuses on a carefully curated guest list that helps keep a lookout for new people.
