Mightybell launched publicly in April 2014 to unlock revenue and insights faster for passionate hosts, companies and brands through their own modern social networks. A modern social network is a natural, self-organizing network of members who talk freely and openly with each other about their experiences and needs in real-time. On Mightybell, networks generate new, precise sources of member data and insights so hosts can make better decisions and increase the effectiveness of every marketing dollar spent.
Founded by Gina Bianchini and led Ning, the largest social platform for communities, started in 2004. Under her leadership, Ning grew to 90 million monthly uniques and 300,000 monthly active networks across entertainment, politics, education and specialized interests.
Mightybell has been featured in Wired, Fast Company, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The company is backed by Floodgate Partners, First Round Capital, Cowboy Ventures and Lucas Venture Group.
