Byte closed June with a bang as House of Genius welcomed Fidatto, Crowdspoke, and the Ski Lift to the Bing.com headquarters. The founders of these companies and a room full of experts—our largest and most professionally diverse to date—engaged in three hours of inquiry, discussion, and constructive networking. Before calling it a night, ideas were forged and connections made.

Two days later, House of Genius celebrated its first month in Austin. Read about the inaugural event here, or sign up for the next session in the capital city of Texas.

On July 26, the Boulder House will host K. Three local companies are offering glimpses into their businesses, and in return, House of Genius is looking for individuals prepared to give their feedback. If you’re interested in contributing and expanding your network in the Boulder community, sign up here.

If you don’t make it for the K session, you can still register to be invited for future events. They occur on the last Tuesday of each month, so be on the lookout for more information.

Finally, a special thanks to SwagLove, Approbatics, Made, and Bing.com. Growth would not be possible without the unwavering support of these sponsors.

Cheers to Austin!

Over the past eight months, we’ve watched House of Genius Boulder evolve into a family. Yet as our network grows with each session, our home must also expand. With that in mind, we recently welcomed House of Genius Austin to the table.

The structure of House of Genius was designed to reach beyond state lines and city limits. Austin is the first example—and first test—of expansion into new cities. By focusing on a common mission, the Boulder and Austin Houses remain identical in service of their communities and format. Yet in important ways, the two will be entirely unique. Founded to promote local businesses and local entrepreneurship, Austin will be—must be—its own entity, a sister to the Boulder House yet with a flavor entirely individual.

The Mercurial Session took place on Thursday June 30th, just after the Byte session in Boulder. Conjunctured was kind enough to offer their venue for the session. We were prepared for the challenge of growth and the realization of our mission: diversity of thought, the elimination of stunted solutions, an open space where voices can be heard, and creative ideas born across the country. Preparations were made, the structure was in it’s place and the Austin House was a great success!

Kevin Verde, the host of House of Genius Austin, his team, and a community of thinkers led an energetic discussion and an evening of connections.

We were honored to have the following presenters to kick off the inaugural session in Austin:

Firefly LED Lighting

Three words: Efficiency, Longevity, and Flexibility.  A proprietary heat sink design dissipating 40 % more heat than the competition; a modular lamp design providing for hardware upgrades rather than lamp replacement; and out of the box functionality for dimming and control make Firefly LED a leader in the marketplace.
