It all began in 1989 when Mark Surfas first set out to transform internal communication at all organizations. Frustrated as a member, he knew there had to be an easier way for leaders to share insights, staff to effortlessly manage events, and members to have more meaningful interactions.
Fast-forward a few growth spurts and our team has sprawled into multiple offices. We impact thousands of members everyday, and our list of happy customers now includes dozens of world-class organizations such as Goldman Sachs, GenNext, and YPO, just to name a few.
Yet some things haven't changed. We're still fiercely focused on creating a digital experience that makes members, customers, and employees feel comfortable connecting. We still work tirelessly towards this vision everyday, pushing software updates every two weeks. And the number of clients who've left us remains zero.

CEO and Founder
Our leaders have "done it before". Advised by rockstar industry titans and a 5-time entrepreneur himself, Mark has built some of the largest -- and a few of the smallest -- internal communication platforms on earth. From early bulletin board systems in the 80’s to GameSpy, an early online forum with hundreds of thousands of daily users, Mark and the team know how to build thriving communities, scale beautifully intuitive software platforms, and light the fire in any group.
GroupFire is a family of community-obsessed builders. Like most other humans, we yearn deeply for a sense of connection. But what makes us a little, well, different is our unwavering drive to foster belonging within all groups -- not just our own.
Rain, sleet, hail or snow. We are available 7 days a week to solve problems and create opportunities for you and your group.We've never had a client churn and that's in large part because we do whatever it takes, and then some. Customer-centricity is in our DNA.
Our focus on end users shines through in our product. Member engagement is our north star, and we iterate quickly to continuously enhance the experience. That means building tools that both members and administrators can't live without.
From eclectic team lunches to new team meeting formats and projects that fall outside our job descriptions, we constantly challenge ourselves to adapt and grow. We believe in hard work, but know how to have fun doing it!
