From frustation to action

The Gen has been founded by Andrew Barrie to create a product to better serve the business ecosystem. As technology has made us more connected many of us have never felt so alone.

Our mission with The Gen is to provide communitiy organisers with the tools they need to succeed. One aspect of this is The Gen platform, a place for organisers to home their community and give a central focus to their efforts. Invite on your members, collaborate, connect, share and succeed as a collective.
