Cisco Spark Innovation Fund
Unlocking the innovation that will change the way
we work together

About the Fund

The pace of change today is unprecedented. The so-called “fourth industrial revolution” is upon us and it will have dramatic impacts on our productivity. How will your teams keep up? The Spark Innovation Fund is a $150M endeavor by Cisco to unlock the great ideas that have the potential to change the way we work together.

Who Participates

Cisco is a global leader in collaboration products and services. A vast network of customers and partners drives our innovation. They demand the very best experiences so teams can connect anywhere, anytime.

Now, we’re growing this ecosystem further by introducing the Cisco Spark Innovation Fund. By reaching more developers from around the world, together we can supercharge the power of the Cisco Spark platform.

We are seeking customer-focused ideas that utilize our communications services in a transformative way. Fund activity will include direct investments, non-equity seeding, and joint development programs.

Get Started

Whether or not you’ve already built something great on our Cisco Spark and Tropo platforms, we want to hear about what you’re doing.

And if you haven't looked at our APIs yet, there’s no time like the present. The Cisco Spark and Tropo developer sites are easy to use, and Cisco DevNet offers helpful learning labs to get you going.
