Miranda Lievers

Badass Businesswoman &
Thinkific Co-Founder / COO

Miranda is a Vancouver-based entrepreneur who thrives at the intersection of small business and technology.

As co-founder & COO of Thinkific, she's helped over 50,000 entrepreneurs and small businesses grow their companies with online courses and learning products to date while educating tens of millions of students around the globe.

In 2021, she and her team took Thinkific public on the Toronto Stock Exchange, securing a valuation north of $1B and furthering the company's mission to make it simple for entrepreneurs and established businesses of any size to scale and generate revenue by teaching what they know.

At the same time, Thinkific is fast becoming known for an incredible team and culture, and has earned multiple accolades including Great Place to Work ® and Canada's Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ awards, and was named Company of the Year (Scale) in 2021 by BC Tech.

Before Thinkific, Miranda helped scale a team from 40 to 1600 people, jumped ship from corporate life, grew her side hustle to 7 figures, and decided to get her MBA just for fun.

She's an active writer, occasional indie film producer, mentor for women in business, and mom to a very cool 9-year-old and his 2yr old baby brother.
