OneSpark is the new age, globally backed start-up on the block that’s completely re- inventing and disrupting the global insurance industry.
OneSpark’s founders, Greg Smith and Josh Kaplan have always been purpose-driven, passionate South African entrepreneurs. They have lived their lives under the single-minded pursuit of trying to uplift people and society at large. That’s why they became actuaries, designed dozens of award-winning insurance products, helped create one of Africa’s largest Social Impact Bonds and finally, started OneSpark, a company who is doing everything it can to help create a better future for us all.
OneSpark initially contributed R100 000 to help those affected by the recent unrest. Together with other committed and proud South African companies, this contribution has now increased to over R200 000 to help families and businesses that have been severely affected rise out of this unrest and come out stronger.
In partnership with Trope Farming & Fremax Farms they have now sent trucks down to KwaZulu Natal to feed over 30 000 people in need. Food and much needed essentials have been delivered to individuals, organisations, such as the Soweto Association of People with disabilities, the SPCA in Durban, homeless shelters and more. Businesses who have suffered destruction and looting have received much needed monetary assistance to help rebuild.
