House of Genius brings together entrepreneurs and a diverse mix of collaborators from the community for an evening each month of disruptive thinking, supportive input, and creative new ideas.
The goal of House of Genius is to assemble interesting, diverse groups of people to focus their collective creativity and experience to explore, discuss and solve important problems of entrepreneurship. They hold evening sessions once a month.
What happens in a typical session?
House of Genius brings together a group of 15-18 wide-ranging minds and three business presenters. The three presenters share their business and a key problem they are facing in rapid-fire fashion. Next, each attendee offers questions, insights, suggestions, or introductions that may assist the presenter. The true “genius” is in the collaboration – you’ll be amazed at the power of thinking that is evoked from the structure of the sessions and the synergetic format.
What’s with all the mystery?
First names only at the start. House of Genius works best when we have a diversity of perspectives and where people candidly share their ideas freely and without filtering or ego. Attendees are asked to refrain from disclosing their backgrounds at the start of the session so that ideas are accepted at face value and to encourage everyone to contribute equally. Attendees or presentation topics aren’t announced in advance; it’s a simple way to guarantee creative thinking, honest feedback and fresh ideas. The format encourages attendees to lend their unique insights to problems that may be outside their fields of expertise — a crucial ingredient to gain novel perspectives and create innovative solutions.
