Carl Downs (Founder)


Genius was founded back in 2015 by Carl Downs. At the time Carl was in the training industry and had used a couple of different training management systems and thought he could build something better, so Genius was born.

As a solo founder Carl designed and developed Genius 18 hours a day for the next 2 years solid to create a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) which is a term often used in software development and means software that is basic, no frills, does the job. This was to guage interest and gain feedback, which with almost 14,000 development hours is a huge risk.

"There was no quick way to develop Genius, it was hand coded, every character, every line of code and that takes time. My aim was to develop a cloud based platform specifically for training from the ground up, that would eventually seamlessly integrate with all of the other software typically used by training companies such as Stripe for card payments, Xero, Quickbooks and Sage accounting software, Google Maps/SatNav for Joining Instructions, mass email marketing software and more. This would massively reduce the administration time involved in running a busy training business." stated Carl.

However despite the many thousands of hours of development work the initial product was slow, buggy and had very few features, but was good enough to gain a few initial customers, as those valuable first few customers gave feedback Genius was further developed. Here we are 9 years later and Genius is unrecognisable from that early version, with hundreds of features all suggested by our community of users.
