Geniecast – The Virtual Experience Company is at the center of emerging technologies that connect people in more interactive and meaningful ways.


We have developed a way to make this incredible, interactive brain trust available to anyone, anywhere, anytime,” says Alper. "Our success at Geniecast puts us on the leading edge of emerging technologies that can connect people in more interactive and meaningful ways."

Talking shop with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, world-renowned small business expert Susan Solovic, or “Millennial CEO” and elevator pitch champion Chris Westfall used to require a private jet—or at least a huge budget for a speaking engagement. But now, St. Louis-based Geniecast has created a sort of “Amazon of people” that personally connects clients with these powerhouses – and hundreds of others. The company is marking its second anniversary with a robust 50% growth rate, powered by unique content and powerful technology, linked by a people-focused approach.

Serial entrepreneur Keith Alper launched Geniecast in 2016 as a way of using technology to connect people in meaningful ways. In just two years, Geniecast has disrupted the consulting, communications, and speakers’ bureau industries, and helped companies of all sizes gain access they never could have imagined. Geniecast has created the world’s largest platform of thought leaders, athletes, speakers, celebrities, consultants, facilitators, and more presented via live, two-way interactive video, and at a fraction of the cost of an in-person appearance. Moreover, the company’s “Genies” are available for meetings ranging from one to thousands of people. Geniecast works with global clients like Express Scripts and Sam's Club as well as smaller organizations around the world.

The virtual nature of the Geniecast marketplace allows businesses to interact live with the best minds in business, education, nonprofits, and more at a fraction of the cost of an in-person presentation, eliminating the need for travel and improving schedule flexibility. The platform also offers the ability to move quickly on solution-based programming due to the ease of setup and lack of logistical obstructions. Geniecast oversees the production and logistics of each Cast, and each has the potential for hundreds of participants to take part simultaneously.

“Imagine having one-on-one access to the foremost authority in the world on the future of AR/VR or Cyber Security, and then allowing your team the opportunity to interact with, learn from, and be inspired by them,” said Alper, founder and CEO of Geniecast. “We’ve curated a roster of thousands of experts, authors, and speakers to revolutionize the way businesses can invigorate their employee base, train their teams, and offer clients exclusive access to thought leaders in their field. It’s like having your own personal, interactive TED Talk customized just for you.

The future of virtual interaction is about to APiR

To celebrate its second year of revolutionizing business communications, in the Summer of 2018 Geniecast is rolling out a revolutionary new product in the augmented reality/virtual reality space called APiR, a first-in-class broadcasting tool that allows remote Genies to interact live with clients seamlessly – as if they are in the room.

"Our Augmented Placement in Real-Time (APiR) technology will revolutionize this market, and St. Louis is on the leading edge," says Alper. “The first thing we hear when someone experiences APiR for the first time is, ‘Whoa.' It’s unlike anything they’ve seen before.”
