Spark Foundry, the Acceleration Agency.

We help brands to identify, learn and respond to opportunities faster than the competition.

Every client has an area of their business they need to accelerate, from short-term goals to long-term transformation.

We’ve proven our approach during the most difficult year on record. Now we’re using it to provide a launchpad for their future.

Come be an accelerator with us.

How we accelerate

  • Planning: an approach that works in practice rather than theory, arming planners with the ability to create cutting edge campaigns
  • Intelligence: a suite of tools that give definitive answers to big questions, and uncovers actionable insights about real people
  • Trading: a model built on flexibility and trusted relationships, underpinned with bold guarantees
  • Relationships: a culture of asking challenging questions to better understand the brief – we are not a ‘yes’ agency
  • People: a strong history of recruiting talent from diverse backgrounds and accelerating their careers
