As the 2015 One Spark crowdfunding festival begins, we speak with special One Spark Speaker Summit guests Tamara Mendelsohn, VP of marketing for EventBrite, Ryan Feit, CEO of SeedInvest, and Maya Penn, CEO of Maya's Ideas.

MOCA Jacksonville Director of Communications Denise Reagan joins us to discuss the museum's ongoing MOCA is Now campaign and special programming during the festival.

We also speak with One Spark's Meredith O'Malley Johnson and Patrick Murphy about what goes into making the event happen, and how you can vote for creators.

And we speak Mee Mee TV Jax founder Kathryn McAvoy about the station's focus on local productions.
