Changing the hardware development game at Adafruit

In 2005, Limor Fried was procrastinating on her thesis at MIT when she built her own MP3 player. After posting about it online, people asked if Limor would send “kits” so they could build their own—so she started a small side hustle. Fast forward 16 years and Limor’s company, Adafruit, has over 100 employees and a 50,000-square-foot factory in New York City. Limor selects, tests, and approves hundreds of different products for an eager community of creatives of all ages and skill levels. She has received numerous awards for her inspiring work, and was the first female engineer on the cover of Wired.
