600x400 Fledge4

Meet the Fledge4 fledglings

on March 3, 2014 | in demo day, fledglings, seattle

Twice per year we invite a handful of companies into Fledge.  This month is our fourth-ever session, our most sought after ever, and our first truly international group.  Six new fledgling, again targeting a wide variety of impacts, markets, and geographies.

Most exciting is that three of these companies are actively doing business in Tanzania.  Nearly as exciting is that five of the six companies are not based in Seattle.  In less than two years, Fledge has grown from a Seattle-centric accelerator of idea-stage companies, to an recognized, global accelerator of established impactful startups.

But enough about Fledge… time to meet the new fledglings:
