MISSION: MAKE TECH AVAILABLE TO ALL
Birmingham-based Fledging is on a mission to bring electronics to everyone. This electronics startup embraces the philosophy that people shouldn’t have to choose between paying top dollar for a quality product or buying an inexpensive alternative that doesn’t last.
“We make products that work well, last a long time, and come at a fair price. Our products crack into captured ecosystems, like Apple, to give people as much value as possible from their products instead of limiting them by the manufacturer’s captive business model,” said Ethan Summers, CEO of Fledging.
Fledging is known for premium performance, ease of use, affordability, and global availability. They stay ahead of the ever-changing technology in the consumer electronics industry by reading, watching, and discussing complex situations. Tech out their work.
