Magnises is quickly becoming the most popular private club for ambitious millennials. Members of this exclusive club get premier access to the hottest venues in two of the East Coast’s most prosperous cities.
People who join Magnises get a special black card, which was inspired by the famous American Express black card. This Magnises black card is not a tied to any bank or financial institution, but a member can use this card in lieu of his/her “official” credit or debit card.
Everyone’s tastes will be satisfied with Magnises membership. That’s because Magnises offers such a wide variety of events to their members. Whether a person is into sports, theatre, concerts, night clubs, or even just making professional contacts, Magnises promises to help every member get to where he/she wants to go.
Just a few examples of Magnises’ most recent event deals include discounted orchestra-level seats to the popular Broadway musical Hamilton, and discounted tickets to the fall Cowboys at Giants game.
Magnises members also get access to the Magnises concierge app called “Magnises NOW.” This app tells users all about special experiences and meet-ups in either New York City or Washington D.C. Magnises executives describe this app as a member’s “personal concierge.”
Magnises was founded by the ambitious entrepreneur Billy McFarland. Born in NYC in 1991, McFarland was already building businesses online at the age of 13. Although he attended Bucknell University for one school year, he quickly left after founding the successful startup Spling. McFarland’s Spling, which helps companies change the appearance of their URLs, has many big name clients. Just a few of Spling’s customers include NBCUniversal and Discovery. MacFarland still serves as the CEO of Spling.
McFarland founded Magnises in 2013 with the hopes of creating a vibrant community of professionals in some of the world’s most dynamic cities. As of 2015, McFarland has been able to raise $3 million from Magnises’ 10,000-plus members.
Most of the people who are members of Magnises are aged between 20-30. Many are involved in some professional industry, including finance, tech, media, or fashion. Although Magnises was designed to help members get access to exclusive events in two of America’s most prestigious cities, it has also become one of the best ways for millennials to network with people higher up in various industries.
Magnises is now working on a few new “lifestyle perks.” One of these perks is called ClubPass. As the name suggests, people who purchase ClubPass membership will be able to gain access to every single NYC club. ClubPass membership costs $65 a month.
Another new feature Magnises just introduced is called HotelPass. This perk was made to help users get a room at some of NYC’s most exclusive hotels for a fraction of the cost.
Members of Magnises currently pay $257.55 each year for their membership. The team at Magnises is working hard to expand their city list in the next few years. Some other cities that might soon be included on Magnises’ list include London, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, and Atlanta.
