Inspire Genius Foundation
A charity dedicated to inspiring young adults to reach their full potential

The Inspire Genius Foundation is on a mission to inspire, guide and motivate young adults of all backgrounds to achieve their maximum potential, regardless of academic level. The charity aims to instil an entrepreneurial spirit amongst young adults, that is too often absent from today’s education system. From a young age, children are told that wrong answers are unacceptable. The Inspire Genius Foundation will demonstrate that A* grades are not needed for true business success, and aim to highlight the importance of learning through “mistakes”.
