Spark was founded by Hannah Huber, a Dutch-American who has called Amsterdam her home for over 15 years. Originally from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and having lived in Washington, DC, Hannah's passion is bringing inspirational people together, connecting talent to those who can learn from this talent. Hannah previously served as a resident director for the leading U.S. study abroad organization for American students, running programs in Amsterdam and Groningen. She currently serves as a program manager at Nyenrode Business University next to her work at Spark. She has a proven track record in curriculum design, organizing events, finding guest speakers, and hosting events. Her intercultural skills complement her passion for bringing people together and making connections. Throughout the process of starting her own business Amsterdam Academy, she realized how many female entrepreneurs were operating in isolation of each other and decided to do something about it - Spark was born.
