It's Nice to Be from Birmingham, AL
Weida Tan founded Fledging in 2017 because he had a problem: His MacBook’s SSD was failing, and as a broke college student in the middle of a PhD program, he knew he couldn’t afford a new MacBook and didn’t want to give up his trusty device because of a single bad part.
So he built his own.
From this success came Fledging's mission: to bring premium electronics to everyone.
That's what we're here for. Everyone should have access to great technology for their work and play. We started with SSDs for Mac, expanded to External SSD Enclosures for USB and Thunderbolt 3, and are cooking up new products all the time like Hubble for iPad and a premium multi-port GaN charger to clean up your cluttered desk in style.
And we do it all from our home in Birmingham, Alabama, a city building a collaborative startup community where everyone is helping each other thrive.
