We made it our mission to bring your people together, and we never looked back.

The Company

Some platforms connect businesses to people. Others connect people to people. We do both.

People have high expectations. To engage everyone – all your members, customers, partners, advocates – you need to create a distinct, original experience to help everyone connect, create, and innovate together. That’s what we’re all about.

How We Started

We’ve had engagement on the brain for a long time. Our founders started building community, networking, and engagement tools together over ten years ago – that spark of an idea has grown to over 3,000 community and marketing automation customers around the world, supported by over 300 employees in three offices across the country.

“Access to the community ranked as one of our most valued member benefits in our most recent member survey. Higher Logic provides 340B Health the support and customer service we need to build a thriving online community.”
