Sparsity Technologies is based in Barcelona. It has existed since 2010, when it was spun off from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia to commercialise Sparksee, its core product. Sparksee itself has existed since 2006 (although it was called DEX until 2014) and was originally created at the aforementioned university. Notably, Sparsity Technologies still offers evaluation, research and development licenses for Sparksee free of charge. The company also participates in the LDBC (Linked Data Benchmark Council), an effort to introduce standardised benchmarks for graph databases.
