Entrepreneurs rarely examine any one issue in isolation, and this fireside chat is no different: recruiting, investors, growth, product-market-fit, more growth, shifting products, inspiring the team successfully and more will be covered in this session. Join Gina Bianchini, CEO and founder of community platform Mightybell (and Ning before it) and Roy Gilbert, CEO of online social learning company Grockit and former head of Google’s Global User Operations as they dive deep into these topics.
GINA BIANCHINI is the Founder and CEO of Mightybell, the first community platform built to support networks of groups. Before Mightybell, Bianchini and Marc Andreessen co-founded Ning, the largest social platform for communities of interests and passions online. She served as CEO of Ning from its inception in 2004 to March of 2010, at which time Ning had 90 million monthly unique visitors, 46 million registered users and 300,000 monthly active communities across entertainment, politics, education and interests. Gina and Mightybell have been featured in Fast Company, Bloomberg Business Week, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
