OUR PURPOSE CIRCLES
In August 2016 we launched GeniusU Circles around the 17 United
Nations Global Goals and linked to the Purpose Test. We appointed
Purpose Circle Leaders to support the members of each circle.
In 2017 each of these circles will show measurable progress towards
each of the 17 Global Goals, and the contribution of GeniusU members
towards these goals in impacts and apprenticeships.
OUR CITY CIRCLES
Each City Circle will include the
same functions as other GeniusU
purpose circles - with mentors, a
members list and a genius
In addition each City Circle will
make use of our events module
to run Entrepreneur Socials
each month and will have the
opportunity to host a 2017 Fast
Forward Satellite Summit.
MONTHLY ENTREPRENEUR SOCIALS
Each City Leader will commit to host a monthly Entrepreneur
Social, which will include a 20-minute talk + Q&A followed by a
networking session. Speakers are individuals who are impacting the
UN Global Goals and will share their personal story and best advice
for fellow entrepreneurs.
