About Gina Bianchini
Gina Bianchini is passionate about how people use social software to organize and experience their interests and passions online and in the real world.

Bianchini was an early pioneer in social software, beginning work in this area in 2004 when she and Marc Andreessen co-founded Ning, the first and largest social platform for interests and passions online. She served as CEO of Ning from its inception to March of 2010, at which time Ning had 90 million monthly unique visitors, 46 million registered users, and 300,000 monthly active social networks across entertainment, politics, education, and interests. In December 2011, Ning merged with Glam Media, a premier brand advertising company.





Today Bianchini is the CEO and founder of Mightybell, a new social platform seeking to revolutionize how online groups form, organize, and grow around interests, passions and goals in 2012 and beyond. The company is coming out of its beta this spring.

Gina has been featured on Fortune Magazine’s “40 under 40,” Huffington Post’s 10 technology “Ultimate Game Changers,” and 7x7 magazine’s “Hot 20” list. Gina and Ning have been featured in Fast Company, Wired, The New York Times, Fortune, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal. She has also appeared on Charlie Rose, CNBC, and CNN.

Prior to founding Ning, Gina was Co-Founder and President of Harmonic Communications, an early advertising tracking, measurement, and optimization software company backed by Sequoia Capital and acquired by Dentsu. She started her career at Goldman Sachs & Co.

Bianchini serves on the board of directors of Scripps Networks Interactive (NYSE: SNI), which owns HGTV, The Food Network, The Travel Channel, The Cooking Channel, The DIY Network, and Great American Country.

She graduated with honors from Stanford University and received her M.B.A from Stanford Business School. She is an advisor to The Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University; and She Writes, the largest social network for women writers globally.

very interesting forum ... loved the woman from Asia - video seemed to work well. Would like to see more in the promotion for WIZIQ I rarely see many Americans there and wondering what is happening with getting more attention from this country as far as attendance.
