Pingsta is an intellectual collaboration platform exclusively for Internet engineers. Pingsta enables enterprises, IT service providers and government agencies worldwide to access expertise information.
Founded in Palo Alto, California, United States by serial entrepreneur Peter Alfred-Adekeye in February 2007 to serve as an intellectual collaborative tool for network inventors, scientists, distinguished engineers and technical leaders.
The Pingsta platform is an integral part of sister-business Multiven, also founded by Peter Alfred-Adekeye, which utilizes the crowdsourced knowledge in order to offer vendor-neutral network maintenance services.
On November 20, 2007, MySolvr, an initiative to create an open repository of internet work intelligence was launched. This project, unlike Pingsta, is free and open to all, aiming to create internet work intelligence that is comprehensive, organized and validated.

- Receiving an invitation from a current Pingsta member
