About Farhad Khan:

Passion and expertise converge in Farhad, whose love for membership growth strategy knows no bounds. For 15 years, Farhad's company, Grype Digital, has been building large-scale membership sites for professional associations. His expertise lies in creating web experiences that truly engage and delight audiences, helping member-based organizations reach their full potential.

Farhad noticed that many organizations were building websites and membership sites without a clear revenue or member engagement strategy. Some strategy consultants would offer big-picture plans but lacked the technical execution, while developers without experience in member-based organizations struggled to collaborate on engagement strategies. Recognizing this gap in the market, Farhad took action and created Member Lounge to help fix this.

Member Lounge is the association's member’s only website and the go-to for members to access all association benefits in one place. It integrates with your organization’s website and CRM to deliver a seamless experience for all your members.



Armed with a solid foundation in software engineering, Farhad earned his Bachelor of Engineering degree from Carlton University in Ottawa, Ontario. This educational background continues to fuel his technical brilliance and innovative problem-solving skills.
