The Network

SPARK is a coalition of small business technology companies that are motivated by a common thread: to protect the interests of the technology community. We are working with other trade organizations in Massachusetts to provide a first responder network for current and future contentious political issues that have an impact on the small business technology sector. Our first priority is to push an immediate injunctive relief; our second is supporting efforts to repeal the Tech Tax through the legislature AND through the ballot initiative.
