STARTUP GENIUS MANIFESTO

More important than what we do is why we do it.

Startup Genius is on a mission to help 98% of the population by enabling education, industry and entrepreneurs with a SaaS-based platform to build and manage local and regional self-serve innovation ecosystems.

We believe that all entrepreneurs need a little help in their journey.  We’re not alone as hundreds of thousands of programs exist but still so few can participate.  So our philosophy is to help enable those in education, industry and economic development to serve entrepreneurs.

Our mission was born in Silicon Valley but our passion starts and extends far beyond the tech and startup hubs of the world. We believe firmly that if we can enable education and industry locally and regionally, we can serve those who are not participating in the innovation economy today.
