Genius Group Ltd owns 100% of the GeniusU Platform and has grown from US$8 million to US$56.7 million in valuation as it has grown to 1,200,000 students and US$40 million expected revenue in 2020. Genius Group is the World’s No.1 Entrepreneur Education Group.
Genius Group is now expanding as a Venture Builder, acquiring training companies and then accelerating their growth through the tools and marketing provided by GeniusU and their individual expertise. In August 2019, Genius Group acquired Entrepreneurs Institute, which owns all of the IP created by Roger James Hamilton.
Genius Group is acquiring Entrepreneur Resorts, the world’s leading group of resorts and beach clubs running entrepreneur events and accelerators, with locations in Bali, Singapore, South Africa and Czech Republic. The company is a public listed company with a current market cap of US$30 million.
Genius Group is acquiring Quantum Learning Network, a company partnering with the USA Schools Superintendents Association & The National Association of Elementary School Principals for their 21st century education programs & SuperCamp programs. The company has revenues of US$3.5 million and a market value of US$7 million.
The group currently plans to list at a valuation of over $120m, with a series of acquisitions coinciding with an IPO on NYSE American. The plan is then to grow to over $500 million in size within 5 years, and over $1 billion in 7 years.
Each of the acquisition companies grows in value by leveraging Genius Group’s global entrepreneur community and digital tech layer to grow the revenue and profitability of each company.
With the onset of the current coronavirus crisis, Genius Group is raising $1,000,000 to pursue its acquisition strategy on the path to the IPO. The funds are being raised as a three year convertible loan at 10% per annum interest paid quarterly, convertible to shares in Genius Group at the pre-IPO price prior to the IPO.
The first $500,000 raised from existing investors will receive 12% instead of 10% interest.
In the two weeks to 14th April, our existing investors are invited to register at the preferential 12% interest rate. The loan is secured against the assets of Genius Group. The holding company and its funds are based in Singapore and in multiple currencies, providing a hedge against local currency risks in the coming downturn.

+ What will the investment funds be used for?

+ What are the risks for investors?
As with all the investments in company shares, there is no guarantee of return, however with the convertible loan the interest is guaranteed. Risk may come from potential competitors and changes in market conditions when we are listed. The management of Genius Group constantly seek to maximise the growth and success of the company while minimising risk. The venture builder strategy of buying profitable, cash positive companies helps to lower risk, as does having one class of share in which all management and shareholders have equal votes per share and rights per share.
+ Will I receive dividends?
The convertible loan round is deemed interest and for the first $500,000 attracts a 12% interest, and after that will attract a 10% interest. For when we list, we will be expecting to pay dividends out as we grow our profitability.
+ How can I sell my shares?
In the period prior to the IPO, if you choose to sell your shares you will need to match your shares with a buyer. However, we may be able to assist you in this as there is an ongoing demand for shares in the company. After the IPO, you can sell your shares via the stock market.
