Midjourney is an independent research laboratory that explores new ways of thinking and encourages people to use their imaginations. It is run by a small team of 11 people, and they are supported by a group of advisors who are experts in their field. The team includes executives such as David Holz, who worked at NASA and Leap Motion, as well as research and engineering staff, legal advisors, and moderators for their Discord channel. Midjourney's mission is to create new technologies that help people think in innovative ways and to foster an environment of creativity. They are also focused on developing human infrastructure and artificial intelligence.
