Geniac scales helping others to grow

Business management platform Geniac offers its ‘office as a service’ products to startups – HR, legal, accounting and insurance – all in one place and managed on their behalf. In 2015, the company raised £22m from assurance and tax advisory giant Grant Thornton, and it is now working with GT to improve its startup offer. Chief executive Mike Galvin, a former Accenture management consultant, explains the Geniac way, that GT deal – and the big challenges ahead in the rest of 2016. Interview by Julian Blake.
