Better Know a Sponsor: AdSpark
Charlotte web entrepreneur Matt McGlothlin founded AdSpark Promos in late 2010. The company sells promotional products such as koozies, hats, pens, t-shirts, and any other product on which you can place a logo.
AdSpark has been a proud Ignite Charlotte sponsor since the third event. Matt says, “The event meshes nicely with our community-based philosophy. We like that the event opens minds and opens doors for people.” McGlothlin also loves the entrepreneurial spirit that surrounds the event. “Facilities such as Packard Place and Lightbulb Coworking are bringing local entrepreneurs into the spotlight. We like to think of our business as a startup because there is nothing quite like AdSpark out there.”
So what makes AdSpark different from other promotional product companies? They strive to use local screen printers and local suppliers as much as possible, helping to support other Charlotte business owners. Discounts are provided on any eco-friendly product ordered, and a portion of the proceeds of every order are donated to the client’s non-profit of choice. This is the essence of McGlothlin’s community-based philosophy.
AdSpark always seems to enlighten us with some of the neat gadgets on which they place the Ignite Charlotte logo: flash drive bracelets, laser pointer pens, and portable mini-mice for your netbook!
Welcome back AdSpark and thank you for your sponsorship support of Ignite Charlotte 5!
