Imagine a world filled with millions of independent, vibrant networks mastering something interesting together.

About Us

Founded by Gina Bianchini (co-founder & CEO of Ning), Mighty Networks burst onto the scene in 2017.

A pivot from the enterprise-only platform Mightybell, which powered communities for Intuit, American Express, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Mighty Networks has unlocked the opportunity to elevate the rapidly growing world of creators with a purpose.

Now, with a Mighty Network, every new person you add to your community or online course creates more value for everyone else without any additional work from you.

This simple dynamic has produced some of the most successful businesses of all time–from Instagram to LinkedIn, Facebook, Airbnb, and more.

Now you can use this same dynamic for your online business.

With your brand available on every platform–native iOS, Android, and web–and regular new feature updates, Mighty Networks is growing rapidly, adding thousands of new creators each month.
