Founded: Summer 2013

Organizer: Josh Anderson

Times: Sessions occur from about 5:45PM – 8:45PM.

Because of its proximity to Seattle, Microsoft, and the great outdoors, Redmond has sprung up as an incredible spawning ground for start-ups on the “east-side” of the Seattle area.  There is nothing quite like the house of genius in the area that mixes the room brilliantly to let the genius come out. You can get an idea of what to expect from this video of participants who have just experienced a House of Genius in Seattle :

Apply to be a part of the mix for an evening of disruptive thinking that happens on the first Thursday of every month, unless otherwise noted.
