If you are a millennial, you understand the importance of knowing where an event is taking place. It is sometimes difficult to follow up events taking place at different locations. Billy McFarland thought of this problem and decide to come up with a solution. He created an online community known as Magnises.
Magnises has grown to become a forum where people get connected to events and happenings in their city. The availability of a card and a mobile app enables one to know of activities happening close to them.
To be part of the program, you have first to subscribe through the company’s website. There are some details you may have to give such as your basic information, name, and address. Administrators of the site will check the information you provide and decide whether you are eligible to join the community or not.
According to Crunchbase, Billy McFarland started his entrepreneur endeavors from a very young age. He founded his first company when he was thirteen years. The company was an online-based platform that matched clients with designers. Billy McFarland later joined Bucknell University to study Computer Engineering.
Just before he reached the end of his first year, he decided to drop out and started Spling. Spling became an online Ad platform which enables users to change URLs to graphics. He still serves as the Chief Executive Officers of Spling. He established Magnises later in 2013 and officially launched the firm in 2014.
Magnises has received incredible success. According to Billy McFarland, the key to such business success has been community endeavors. He has strived to help legal brands market their services and products to millennials. These companies have always needed a marketing platform; Magnises presents the ultimate platform with millennials.
McFarland decided to start the company after he realized that he was decades away from affording expensive black cards. There were no affordable black cards for millennials at that time. He felt the traditional pressure due to a weak digital upgrade.
Billy is also the founder of Spling. He raised capital for Magnises business ventures through Deep Fork Capital. The company has attracted a total of $3 million from investors in New York City.
