Genius Group, a world-leading entrepreneur EdTech and education group, has announced the completion of two of its four planned acquisitions following the closing of its recent initial public offering (“IPO”), Education Angels and Property Investors Network.
With this acquisition, Genius Group and Property Investors Network plan to expand the PIN model to investors globally through Genius Group’s community of partners and students.
Founded by Roger James Hamilton, Genius Group's mission is to disrupt the current education model with a student-centered, life-long learning curriculum that prepares students with the leadership, entrepreneurial and life skills to succeed in today’s market. The group has over 2.7 million students in 200 countries, ranging from ages 0 to 100.
The entrepreneur education system of the Pre-IPO Group has been delivered virtually and in-person, in multiple languages, locally and globally mainly via the Pre-IPO Group’s artificial intelligence (AI)-powered, personalized GeniusU EdTech platform to adults seeking to grow their entrepreneur and leadership skills.
Commenting on the acquisition, Founder and CEO of Genius Group, Roger James Hamilton, said:
"So many students have had their learning disrupted in recent years and it is so important that we offer them the skills to thrive and grow their genius, enabling them to help solve the economic, social and environmental problems our world is facing and to bring about positive change for future generations. Our recent program of acquisitions has been geared to improving educational opportunities in a lifelong learning curriculum from 0-100 years old. We warmly welcome all team members, partners and students from each of our acquisition companies into our Genius family."
The Pre-IPO Group includes Genius Group, GeniusU, Entrepreneurs Institute and Entrepreneur Resorts. This group of entrepreneur education companies has grown through organic growth and acquisitions, with a focus on adding value to each company through GeniusU, which is being developed to provide AI-driven personal recommendations and guidance for each student.
Based in New Zealand, Education Angels is a provider of in-home childcare, which enables children from birth to five years to flourish in a caring environment tailored to their needs. The goal is for children’s learning potential to be maximized and their emotional intelligence built up with the intention that they develop confidence, creativity, and the desire for lifelong learning.
Speaking on the partnership with Genius Group, Director of Education Angels and Co-founder of GeniusU, Angela Stead, said:
"I am delighted to be able to bring Education Angels under the Genius Group umbrella. It gives us the opportunity to continue our global growth and means that we will be able to make our curriculum and educational programs available on a worldwide scale."
Property Investors Network (PIN), headquartered in the United Kingdom, is a property networking organization. It has a city-based event model that connects new and experienced property investors in 50 cities across the UK.
The company's mission is to help people transform their lives through property by providing people with all the tools, inspiration and property networking connections that they need to become financially free.
Chief Executive Officer of Property Investors Network, Simon Zutshi, added:
"Having the opportunity to work with Roger and the team at Genius Group, we are able to leverage our two decades of success in the UK to enter the global market, empowering property entrepreneurs worldwide."
Singapore-based Genius Group's current plan is to combine the education programs of the IPO Acquisitions with its current education programs and EdTech platform as part of one lifelong learning system, and it has selected these acquisitions because they already share aspects of the Genius curriculum and its focus on entrepreneur education.
In 2020, Genius Group had completed the acquisition of Entrepreneur Resorts Ltd, comprising luxury resorts and lodges, beach clubs and city co-working hubs, for $32.6 million.
