TECH CRUNCH - Sparks is an app for couples looking to introduce new and fun experiences to their lives. The Barcelona-based startup, which exhibited as part of the Battlefield 200 at TechCrunch Disrupt, debuted as an MVP in May 2021 and officially launched this week. The startup was founded by CEO Ankit Nayal, who came up with the idea for Sparks after reflecting on his relationship with his partner. He found that he and his partner were often too busy to find things to do together. Nayal decided to create an app focused on helping couples enhance their relationships by finding new experiences, whether it's choosing a new movie, recipe, game, restaurant or vacation. The startup is looking to raise a pre-seed round in Q1 of 2023 and plans to use the funding to add more features to the app.
