JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A new non-profit is getting off the ground at Jacksonville, aimed at sparking some bright ideas in the city.

"It's an opportunity to see some of the most amazing things you can think of in real life."

The founders of One Spark are aiming high.

In April of next year they're hoping to host a 5 day convention for the best and brightest in their field.

"Imagine everywhere you turn, every block being populated by these things. Having 5 days worth of stuff to do in Jacksonville."

"They're going to see all these amazing creators, from innovators, to technologists, to scientists, entrepreneurs, to artists showcasing their stuff that they've brought here from all around the world," said Elton Rivas.

The group is hoping to raise 100-thousand dollars in the next two weeks for One Spark.

The idea is to award that money to the people with the best ideas at the convention.

"Imagine the excitement of artwalk, times 10, all over this city! I think everyone can agree that would be an amazing thing."
