Magnises was founded by Billy McFarland in 2014. Magnises is a benefits platform that helps the members of the program unlock experiences in their cities and take their social lives to the next level. It gives members many unique experiences, both cultural and professional, that are cohesive to their personal interests.
Billy McFarland is the CEO and founder of Magnises. For being young, he has years of experience being an entrepreneur. He started his very first company when he was just 13 years old. It was an online business that matched clients with designers. In just one short decade, he came a long way.
After dropping out of college at the end of his freshman year, he founded another online company called Spling. Spling allows users to improve the appearance of URLs by turning them into graphic images. He still serves as the company’s CEO, where he serves clients like Discovery and Universal.
He created the company Magnises in 2014 as a community-based, technology-based network of perks and guidance that would help improve the lives of millennials in major cities.
Each member has access to all of Magnises’ perks like passes to clubs, special pricing for tickets to sporting events and concerts, and upgrades on travel endeavors.

In addition to these benefits, Magnises also gives each member access to their on-demand concierge app, called Magnises NOW. This app acts as a personal assistant and gives you personalized suggestions for special experiences in the member’s area. These suggestions include dining and nightlife ideas, reservations, and the app can also answer general questions.
Each Magnises member receives a special card with their membership. This Magnises Card is the key to memberships. Each member’s card is personalized to them and acts as a payment tool. It also grants them access to the exclusive benefits provided by Magnises. Membership fees are $257.55 per year. You can also link another debit or credit card to your Magnises card for any payment purposes.
Magnises is meant to connect young people, or millennials, with new businesses and social circles on on Crunchbase. The members-only access and benefits creates opportunities for people of like-minds to meet, socialize, and network.
In 2016, Magnises’ member list added up to over 12,000 people and they are adding more and more benefits as the months go on. For example, members can gain access to co-working facilities at Alley for a heavy discount. Alley is a company of co-working spaces that are typically rented for around $500 a month. Magnises is offering their members a work space for $99 a month.
Another new feature, called ClubPass, gives members guaranteed access to the hottest clubs in New York City for $65 per month. HotelPass, another new benefit, allows members to stay at certain New York Hotel locations for only $79 per night.
By giving young people an opportunity to financially combine their professional and social lives, they can flourish. While enjoying one-of-a-kind experiences, members can also network and increase their professional successes.
