VISION: Leverage fun and games for social good.

OUR STORY

 

Game Genius was founded in 2018 at the intersection of sports, architecture, and philanthropy. Physical play is critical for our individual curiosity, empathy, and communication. Spaces define how we explore and interact with the environment. Giving back identifies what we value and can help build a more equitable tomorrow. Games that capture all three can make what we do and care about more fun.

At Game Genius, we see games everywhere, made out of anything, and designed by anyone. We leverage the process of playing and making games for social good. Our services are designed to use games as the medium to test ideas, develop skills, and solve problems. A team or work culture filled with opportunities to play inspires better work, talent, and leadership. 

 

Our public experiences and products demonstrate how games can lower different barriers and encourage people to celebrate common goals. People are spending an increasing amount of time in front of screens, which changes how we socialize and  negatively affects our mental health. Game Genius features physical games as a counterbalance to the current trends.

 

Finally, Game Genius believes play is an accessible way to give back. We also believe play is cultural, which is why our team focuses on the DC Metro community. In order to do our best work, we want to help from within, not from afar. Local philanthropy can be more inclusive and more transparent - combating two big issues in the sector.
