What do we do?
AbleSpark provides cloud, mobile, and web development services to both businesses and marketing agencies in the Greater Annapolis area. Founded by Michael Carico in 2002, our core principle is that each client has a unique set of needs that should be met to ensure that what we build is working for customer and not the other way around. Our company slogan, “Personalizing Technology®”, exemplifies this and everything that we do.
How did we get our name?
able (adj) – having the power, skill, means, or opportunity to do something.
spark (noun) – a small fiery particle thrown off produced by striking together two hard surfaces such as stone or metal. Often used to start fires. Also anything that activates or stimulates; inspiration or catalyst.
The first step in starting a fire is often creating a spark.
But not all sparks are created equal. Not every spark is
capable of starting a fire. It’s only the “able” spark that
can get the job done.
