"We have a mission to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem by bringing together fresh perspectives and diverse talent to developing businesses."
WHAT IS HOUSE OF GENIUS?
We bring together three exciting early stage businesses on a monthly basis. Each presenter poses a specific set of business challenges to a panel of "geniuses'" from a range of different industries, with the objective of receiving fresh feedback.
The secret sauce: Everyone remains anonymous, until right at the very end, where identities are revealed.
You’ll find Houses in many cities around the world. To find out more, visit our about us page here.
"Our idea is simple. It does not matter who you are, what you do or where you are; our sessions force effective collaboration through direct and honest feedback to solve a diverse range of entrepreneurial challenges."
London Lead Moderator, House of Genius
Having started his career as a technology journalist just as the first dot com boom was busting, Samad developed early cynicism for the hype that surrounds new internet innovations. Since then he has led industry strategy and research programmes analysing the business of technology, and set up and run two successful London-based startup accelerators while leading Accenture's UK Open Innovation programme. But his heart is in House of Genius - where he can really let his cynical hype radar run riot.
